Nature Conservancy Photo Contest

As excitement builds for this year’s Nature Conservancy Photo Contest, Photo Editor Alex Snyder reflects on a memorable moment from 2019: “The body language between the two is what really makes this frame. The use of a shallow depth of field helps separate the kits from the busy background of branches and leaves and lets us focus in on this interaction.”

Be the first to know when this year's Photo Contest opens, what the prizes are and more.

Agelbert NOTE: Scroll down to the plethora of fantastic photos at the Contest Web Page!

Here's a small selection of several you can feast your eyes on:






Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23

Meet the Tiniest Owl in the World

Meet the Tiniest Owl in the World
Native to the American Southwest, Elf Owls are slightly larger than a soda can, but that doesn't stop them from being determined predators. Flying out from its tree cavity at dusk, the Elf Owl hunts beetles, crickets, and spiders, plus the odd lizard or mouse. Larger prey such as scorpions — with the stingers carefully removed — may end up cached in the nest for later dining.


Standing less than six inches tall, feathered in gray with big yellow eyes, the Elf Owl weighs less than an ounce and a half — a bit less than a golf ball.
