Cover Shot


Yes, this is me patting myself on the back. This photo of the Tufted Flycatcher (from Big Bend last December) made it on the cover for the current journal, Western Birds. I'm kind of pumped about it, not gonna deny it. Just a thumbnail size shot of the cover so there's a little bigger version above. Sweet! (by the way, i'm not really 'of' starkville, ms, just so you know)

Congratulations Jill! Your images are always fab, but I can see why this one landed on the front cover. The colours captured, the way the background washes out behind the gorgeous subject, the perfect lighting, well done~
