Bird photo wins Nature Conservancy contest
Posted on the conservancy's website, "Waterhole Landing" garnered the most attention from 19,000 voters. Cheek created the image after "birdscaping" his 6-acre property in the Hill Country. Flower beds, fruit trees, forage grasses and a small pond bring resident and migratory animals to his camera.
Congratulations to Cheek! Very nice to see a bird photo win a nature photography contest.
