2nd place Young Photographer of the Year
Ben Cammarata united States
A juvenile black skimmer hunts for prey at the water's surface. “I had waited many hours on a dock for a black skimmer to get close enough for a decent photo,” says photographer Ben Cammarata. “When this bird came into view, I snapped a few photos at a slow shutter speed in order to show their speed and elegance while hunting.”
