So some great news to wake up to on a Monday morning! I found out that I have two of my pics short-listed in this year's Nature Photographer of the Year contest by National Geographic. It is seriously an honour to have one photo up there, but two - WOW! I am humbled to have photos even considered to be among the other photos in the competition as they are all seriously amazing. Find my photos in the following week 4 galleries - Animal Portraits (photo: Portrait of a Heron) and Action (photo: Passing Through). I want to wish all photographers taking part in this year's competition the best of luck! Peace, Shane.
