3rd Annual #LoveYourLagoon PHOTO CONTEST



Snowy Egret Fishing, By Bob Serling 

About the FIRST PLACE Image:

“I’m always in awe of how resourceful birds are at feeding. Catching a fast moving fish is difficult in itself, but to catch such a huge fish and get it into position to eat it is an incredible challenge. It was very inspiring to watch this Snowy manage the entire procedure. I love that the lagoon is a patch of unspoiled nature right off a major freeway! Early mornings when the sun is rising and the birds are beginning to feed is such a great way to start your day." 
Bob Serling, First Place 2018 Photo Contest

Our judges selected this image as it expresses how Bob Serling loves his lagoon. It’s showing San Elijo Lagoon's natural landscapes (wetland), animals in action (Snowy Egret fishing), and personal interactions (patience and inspiration).
