Over the course of the past 2 years, we have taken some wonderful pictures in Malawi, and this picture wasn't our favorite all-time picture, but was one of our favorites out of those that met the qualifications for entry into this contest (along with his shot of the flying white-faced whistling ducks that got selected for special mention).
