Top Shot: Waiting for a Drop… | Photograph by Victor Breyl
#YourShotPhotographer Victor Breyl captured this moment of a bird in Israel trying to get a drop of water. Your Shot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas writes, “The geometry of the moment is simple and effective. I love that the shapes are outlined so nicely against the background. I hope the bird got a little water!” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on August 20, 2018.
