Best of the Big Picture

The Big Picture Natural World Photography Exhibit will be on view at the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, from July through October, 2019.

A recent article in The Atlantic pointed me toward images from the Big Picture Natural World Photography competition, and I’ve highlighted some of the 2019 winners for you here, from both wildlife and landscape categories.

In addition to loving the colors here, it seems fitting that Lori Notes would take note of a Lorikeet:
