As a volunteer at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida, Lorenzo Cassina has a lot of opportunities for watching the behavior of the birds there. Flamingo Gardens is a non-profit organization that is home to rare and exotic native plants and trees as well as a host of Florida native wildlife. You can learn more about Flamingo Gardens here: www.flamingogardens.org. You can see more of Lorenzo Cassina's photography at his page member page in the OP Galleries.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them
