Birds aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. Neither is photography. But I can’t imagine anyone not appreciating the beauty of birds as seen by great photographers.
Finalists have been announced for the Bird Photographer of the Year award, and that means many more gorgeous photos than just the winning shots. Also included are the crowd favorites.
Overall winners will be announced August 19th, but why wait when there’s so much to see right now?
(They’ve even posted last year’s winners.)
So many photos, so many categories. Glad I’m not a judge. I wouldn’t know where to begin. So I just grabbed these shots as teasers.
A surfeit of riches. Check it out.

Thanks, these are amazing! My favorite of your selections is Theresa Pitter’s. Now I’m off to see the rest!
That little duckling (?) is adorable, isn’t he. I couldn’t begin to pick a favorite. Every time I homed in on one, I’d find another I liked even better. That detail of the feathers blew me away. For some reason it reminds me of a Georgia O’Keeffe painting.
What amazing photos! I love birds!!! 🙂
It’s difficult picking a #1 fav…but that little duck with a little strut is so precious! 😉
I wasn’t trying to pick a favorite. I haven’t even looked at all the photos yet. I just grabbed the first four that stood out for me.
