Nature's Best Photography

Thanks to my friend, Heidi, for sharing with me the awesome photographs of the Nature's Best Photography's Windland Smith Rice International Awards for 2007.

Richard du Toit, the Grand Prize winner, has more photographs in his Nature's Best Photography gallery. If you like polar bears, you'll enjoy Howard Ruby's Gallery. Ruby is the winner of the Conservation Photographer of the Year Award.

It's easier to view the award-winning photographs for 2006 at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History. I am blown away by a photographer, Bruce P. Hall, who is legally blind since birth. If he can do so well, what's the matter with the rest of us?

The photo of the dolphin and humpback whale is my favorite of the awards for 2006 because of the playful interaction of the species.

There's also a website for Nature's Best Photography For Kids, teens, and the young at heart with a gallery called, "Masters In The Making" and a gallery of favorite photographs taken by a few youth from around the world called "My Best Shot."
