Jeffrey Van DerVeer Wins Spring Photo Contest


Congratulations to Jeffrey Van DerVeer for this amazing photo of a bobcat he spotted and photographed near Tibbetts Beach.

Jeff, a detective with a Puget Sound area police department, moved from Connecticut to Washington in 2007 and has been an Issaquah resident since 2009. 

Jeff has been an amateur photographer for more than 25 years with a special interest in birds and wildlife. He is also a triathlete who loves to train for his Ironman triathlons in the park. 

Second place goes to Santosh Jodh for his incredible image of an osprey catching a fish.

Thanks to everyone who submitted photographs to the contest. So many excellent entries made it hard to choose just two.
