Michael Weishan of Cattaraugus was among the winners of Audubon Community Nature Center’s 2021 nature photography contest with his stunning “Water Lilies and Reeds.”
The photo took first place in the Adult Division Flora and earned Michael a $200 cash prize.
Audubon Center officials say the response to the photo contest was truly international — entries came from 17 countries, representing five continents, as well as from more than 30 states. Winners came from across the country and finalists from around the world, including Switzerland, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Australia.
Top photographs submitted for the contest will be on display at the Nature Center in Jamestown. Fine art nature photographer Karen Glosser judged this year’s competition.
The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, a quarter-mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, Pa.
