GBI’s Director of Development, Chris Warner, has waited all year to suggest September’s media contest theme. Inspired by the song “September,” we’ve themed the month around “Earth, Wind & Fire.” Yes, we don’t spend all of our time thinking about landscapes and their inhabitants. Sometimes we just love a good groove. And we always love the fantastic submissions from our field personnel to our media contest.
A case in point is our photography winner, topping this page. This comes from AmeriCorps member Sam Clay, who is serving at Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge as a California Condor Technician. He calls this exciting photo, capturing two male Southern Pacific Rattlesnakes engage in territorial breeding combat in order to win breeding rights with a nearby female, “The Heat of Combat.”
