14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Wild Rooster Crossing the Road in Kauai

Keeping an eye open for beauty is the best way to experience nature. While stopping at a rest stop in Kauai, I was walking to our car and snapped this proud would rooster crossing the road. The photo captured him in the perfect stance. Although there were dozens rooting around, he was the bravest and reminds us all that the ordinary can be extraordinary when you stop and look at natures beauty up close.
