June 15 is Nature Photography Day, a time to promote the enjoyment of nature photography and to reflect on how photos can be used to further the cause of conservation. NANPA celebrated the first Nature Photography Day (NPD) back in 2006 and, over the past 15 years, there have been many ways the day has been observed—not just in North America but across the globe as well.
Earlier this week NANPA announced the winners of its 2020 Nature Photography Day photo contest. Ingrid Lockhart’s “Fern Medley” was awarded grand prize, Patrick Siu’s “Swan Family Dinner Time” received second place honors, and Jennifer Smith’s “Fight Over Fish!” won third place. Photographs by Deborah Duke, Keith J. Freeburn, Jeff Nelson and William Sutton received Honorable Mention awards.
