Aurora photographer Tom Lynn was recently named one of the winners for PDN's Great Outdoors Competition. Tom's photograph of whooping cranes won in the "Plants, Animals, Insects & Gardens" category.
The image captures early morning light greeting whooping cranes at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin. Staff at the International Crane Foundation raise whooping cranes in costume so there will be no human imprint before their release during the Direct Autumn Release (DAR) whooping crane reintroduction program.
