Patrick! Congratulations to carol and you! I love all three photos! NBP is so prestigious, as is display at the National Museum of Natural History! Well done you two!
Julie & I thoroughly enjoyed viewing all the inspiring photographs. Amazing work. Congrats to all and thanks so much for sharing! :)
Carol and I thank you for all your kind words!

The opening ceremony at the museum is November 15. I was invited but had to decline as we will be sitting in blinds in Texas hoping to get some more stellar captures. We do plan to make a museum tour when the cherry blossoms are blooming, and weather is good. It will be great to see my image on the wall and take a few images with me next to it.
