“Eastern Screech Owls like to take over woodpecker nests that have been dug out over the years in pine trees, which are the main species of tree at this swamp. Fish and wildlife also paint a white ring around the base of a tree that has active nests in order to avoid when conducting controlled burns. Screech owls can range in height anywhere from 8-10 inches, so you have to have a sharp eye to find these little birds of prey. I spent the first few weeks of April this year photographing the grey morph screech owl that was living in the nest, and had no idea there were three owlets inside”.

“While doing a photo shoot with my daughter and her friend in a skate park, one of the skateboarders, surprisingly, traveled to our side of the ramp with nothing other than a “Don’t move”, yelling across the way as a head’s up! I heard him, the girls did not. Keeping their back-to-back cool ballerina pose,they didn’t realize he was flying their way until he actually hit the ramp behind them.This picture is as real as they come. They were truly shocked and scared at that exact moment. Such a cool moment. Two pretty, pretty ballerina’s, shocked and appalled at the actions of an urban skateboarder. Priceless!” (Photo and caption by Dana Theil/National Geographic Photography Contest)
