This was harder than I thought! I have so many that I like but I chose these 10 because of what they mean to me and the stories behind them. I have left out some of my award-winning photos, even though they were photographed in 2015, so that I could share some newer images. You can see all of my award-winning photos in my Gallery.

"Thank You, Screech Owl"
A rufous-morph Eastern Screech Owl looks out from the cavity of a Sycamore Tree near my home in NJ.
My photos of this owl won a couple of awards in 2015, including Nature's Best Youth Highly Honored (18 and under), and 1st place in the Por el Planeta Nature, Wilidlife & Conservation Photography competition (11-14 year old).
This photo is of the last time I saw this owl, and it makes me wonder how it is doing. I hope it's safe.
