This year I entered my photographs in a couple of competitions and I feel extremely honored that I received one or two prizes in most of these contests. I am the most excited about the awards that were announced last week in Mexico City at the prize giving ceremony of the Por el Planeta wildlife, nature and conservation photography competition.
