Explorer Christine Crosby Receives Award of Excellence for Dancing Crane Photo
Longtime friend and NE Explorer Christine Crosby’s photography impresses us again! Christine recently traveled with NE to Japan for the Winter Wildlife Photography Tour. Upon returning home, she submitted her lovely photo of a dancing Japanese Red-Crowned Crane to the I Shot It Bird Photo Competition. Japanese Red-crowned Cranes elegantly dance as a courtship display, and Christine’s photo conveys the beauty of this dance to a tee. The photo is so good that it earned Christine the Mark of Excellence award in this competition – chosen out of 375+ photos submitted! It should be noted that this is the first photo contest Christine has ever entered, so we’re very proud of her and looking forward to hearing more about her photographic accomplishments as time goes on. Great job Christine!
