In July, junior Vayun Tiwari was declared the youth winner in the 2020 Audubon Photography Awards. The photo, a striking image of a northern jacana at the New River in Belize, was taken in 2018 during a boat ride. Tiwari spotted a group of the birds and asked the boat captain to stop. “I couldn’t believe my luck when one walked closer and closer to us,” he told the National Audubon Society. Tiwari snapped the photo when one of the birds paused to look at a nearby water lily. The National Audubon Society also posted a short video in which Tiwari details how he discovered and developed his passion for bird photography. This year’s award winners were narrowed to 10 from more than 6,000 submissions.
