Some may remember this photo above from a past post titled "Who Says Mallards Don't Nest in Trees?". I was pleasantly surprised earlier this week when I received the February issue of Virginia Wildlife Magazine and learned that this photo was selected and published as the "Image of the Month".
Virginia Wildlife Magazine has been published by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries for over seven decades. This magazine, for as long as I can remember, was the one magazine that always came to our house. I can remember as a child flipping through the pages just to see the stunning photos; now it's a part of my household.
While I still enjoy the great photography it contains, I enjoy reading the great articles contained inside each issue. It's dedicated to the conservation of Virginia's wildlife and natural resources. In addition, the magazine covers a variety of information on subjects like hunting, fishing, hiking, photography, birding, education and heritage. To say the least, I'm honored to have one of my photos published in this fine magazine.
