9/5/2012 Won 1st place in :icononlybokehormacro:s first contest :woohoo:!

8/2012 won the :iconthefavouriteshowcase:'s August Favorite Poll :heart:

This photo won 2nd in the 2011 El Dorado County Fair :excited:

I absolutely loved the color of the light around this little young male Anna's hummingbird...wish my focus was a bit crisper but it kind of goes with the soft glow...

(this one got a DD! :iconeeeeeplz:)
