Tom Zinneman Wins PSA Nature - Image of the Year
2012-13 in Digital Wildlife and is our
Photo of the Month - Needle Fish Biting Osprey

This image was taken by Tom Zinneman in early February of 2012 at Bunche Beach in Fort Myers. It was one of a sequence of images showing the needle fish flopping around in the Osprey's claws and then swinging its head high enough to clamp onto the Osprey's leg. It was taken with a Canon 7D camera with a 70-400mm lens set at 400mm. The camera settings were: f11 @ 1/640 sec and ISO set at 250.

This picture won the PSA Award of Merit with a perfect score of 15 in Round 3 of 2011-2102 PSA Nature Digital Interclub Competition, in 2012 won Massachusetts Camera Naturalists Best Ornithology and received a CAMNATS Medal (the Gilbert Fernandez Award), and has been awarded PSA Nature Division Image of the Year for 2012-2013 in Digital Wildlife. This is an exceptional achievement as PSA attracts the best photographers and best images world-wide. Congratulations Tom!
