19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
America’s Bird

Early spring I caught this couple in their mating ritual. The Tom in full strut had been following this female and I caught him as he circled around her capturing them both in the shot. They were at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge near Medicine Park.
