Nature’s “Mirror Mirror”: 13 Spectacular Photos with Water Reflection

from Wildlife Promise

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?

I don’t envy the judges of the 2012 National Wildlife® Photo Contest. Over the next few weeks, they’ll pour over thousands of beautiful photos to find the crème de la crème in seven categories.

To improve the odds that your photo will be selected as the “fairest of them all”, visit NWF’s Nature and Wildlife Photography Tips Center. Here you’ll find top photographers sharing advice on everything from getting a sharper photo to photographing wildlife through a window.

But first, enjoy these photos donated by past contest participants that use water to create nature’s mirror.
