And with more than 2,000 photos submitted since the contest began April 1, judging so many top-quality entries was especially challenging.

A 30-year-old software engineer from Framingham, Ghosh got his championship image while observing ducks in the aptly named Waterfowl Pond at Mass Audubon’s Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary in Topsfield.
