Discovery honorable mention

Mark Schaefer is second place winner with his shot of a Semipalmated Plover catching a worm along the Gunpowder River. The photo was take with a Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, a 400mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter at f8, 1/640sec. and ISO 640. Perna says, "Schaefer was quick on the draw to capture nature taking its course in the split-second the plover pulled the worm from the ground. The telephoto lens and converter compressing the out-of-focus background emphasizes the plover and worm in the act of predator versus prey."
