WIld Planet Magazine Female Nature Photographer of the Month!

Today I learned I have been selected as "Female Nature Photographer of the Month" with Wild Planet Photo Magazine. Based in the UK, this international digital publication receives thousands of unique visitors in more than 190 countries. The magazine contains excellent articles and stunning images from around the globe, both from professionals and enthusiasts who all share a passion for wildlife and the natural world.

The published image is of a snowy sheathbill attempting to steal food as a gentoo penguin is about to feed its chick. The image was shot this year at Port Lockroy in Antarctica and appropriately enough, today also happens to be Antarctica Day, when the Antarctic Treaty was originally signed on December 1st, 1959.
