Hot on the heels of being shortlisted in the Festival de L’Oiseau de la nature in France my photo of a female Northern Flicker in flight has been shortlisted in this years Bird Photographer of the year in the birds in flight category.
This is a tough competition entered by many established wildlife photographers from around the world so to be shortlisted is a great honour.
The photo was taken in the Beartooth mountains of the Greater Yellowstone area last June on some nesting sites that local wildlife photographer Dan Hartman uses regularly.
