Woods and Wildlife winners chosen in Celebrate Michigan contest
Our photo staff chose “Dancing Blue Jays,” by Miguel Denyer of Garden City, as the Woods and Wildlife winner. The judges admired the technical skills required to capture the feeding birds in flight during a snowfall and the overall appeal of the scene.
The People’s Choice winner, selected by 679 online voters July 24-28, is “Double Helix,” by Richard Bagdasarian of Wixom. The image of a great blue heron fishing for breakfast at Robert Long Park in Commerce Township led the pack with 256 votes.
Both winners will receive $300. Congratulations to them, and many thanks to all who participated!
