The first place image popped out to us immediately as a favorite. The photographer did a great job framing up the person in the tree and waiting for the moment they wanted to happen. The second place image was a nice moment with good light but could have used a tighter crop. The third place image was a nice feature and took good planning to photograph it on a clear night.
