TUCSON, Ariz.— A digital photograph taken by Yvonne Nieves, of Harvey, La., has been accepted into the Muscular Dystrophy Association Art Collection. Now in its 20th year, the Collection features artwork by people from across the country with muscular dystrophy and related disorders.
"Owl Team Six" is the third photograph from Nieves to be accepted into the Collection. The barn owl nest is in a box that has been equipped with a camera in the backyard of a home in Oceanside, Calif. Nieves was seated at her laptop computer, which also has a built-in camera, monitoring the mother owl and the hatching of the owlets which occurred in the spring of 2011.
