Its status as America’s national bird wasn’t always a sure bet (Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey).

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Ok, maybe not tigers this month but the other two made the cut in some of the winning photos for this assignment.

The tough part was narrowing it down to just six favorites but we think we’ve picked some fabulous images to spotlight here.

He’s been shooting underwater for five of those 17 years and finds the camera a natural extension of his inner being, helping him explore and fathom pelagic life, especially whales, and himself in the process.
