Andy Rouse, professional wildlife photographer, has been awarded the Cherry Kearton Medal, by the Royal Geographical Society in England. The annual award recognizes the contribution made by a wildlife photographer to photography, conservation, and bringing geography to the masses. I have selected some of his bird photos for this blog.
