Amazing Photos of Birds

A coworker called my attention to this photo gallery at The Guardian, spotlighting the winners and finalists in the British Trust for Ornithology’s 2017 “Bird Photographer of the Year” competition. The photographers—and the birds—are from all over the world, and the images are gorgeous. My favorite is the great white heron with a small snake wrapped around its bill, followed closely by the white pelican turning its lower mandible into an enormous fish-catching basket.
