"Feeding Frenzy" of northern shoveler ducks photographed by Steve Jessmore. Audubon selected this image for one of its top honors in this year's photography competition. It appears on the cover of the summer edition of Audubon magazine.

Grand Rapidian Steve Jessmore won the Audubon national professional photography award for the second year in a row. This time for his picture of northern shoveler ducks titled "Feeding Frenzy". Jessmore spent a career as a photojournalist, most recently with the Flint Journal. But it's his turn with nature photography that's launched him in recent years.

Check out his cool Instagram feed of more, as he says, "birds doing stuff" here.

GUEST: Steve Jessmore, photographer, winner of the Audubon photography contest
