EDITORS’ CHOICE Eiko Jones Campbell River, British Columbia Jones was photographing water lilies from four feet under when he saw a “black cloud” in the corner of his eye. Countless tadpoles streamed by. “It went on for ages,” says the 41-year-old photographer. “It was like a huge flock of birds flying through a forest, but completely silent.” READERS’ CHOICE Zahoor Ahmed Bhalwal, Pakistan “I’m deeply in love with birds,” says Ahmed, a wildlife photographer. He spent two months near a saltwater lake in Kallar Kahar to capture this shot of an Asian paradise flycatcher feeding its chick. Despite his fancy feathers, the male does the feeding and incubates eggs in the nest.
