Congratulations to Ray Hennessy from the USA, who wins our April 2017 Photo of the Month event. Ray receives our $100 prize with this stunning image of a Wood Duck taken in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Ray commented on the picture: "A drake Wood Duck cruises right in front of the sun as it shimmers on the water's surface. This location has a perfect setup to create these interesting backgrounds in the morning. The water runs over some shallow rocks which creates ripples and bubbles on the surface that in turn show up as points of light in the photo. I like that it breaks up a rather boring flat background even if it can be somewhat distracting to the subject."
Ray wins our $100 prize.
The winner's picture as well as the top finalists will be published in the June 2017 issue of WPM in high definition – do not miss it!
