With more than 200,000 votes cast in the final round of student Earth Day Photo Contest, Microsoft announced “the winning photo was taken by Alan Bosse, a student studying web design at Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, FL. His photo of a bee gathering the nectar of a passion fruit blossom was chosen by Bing users to be featured on our homepage in honor of 40th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22. Photo, titled “Passion and Bee” from the 18+ age division, was taken in Long Beach, California using a digital Fujifilm Finepix S8100.” Winners in other age divisions included: a whale off the coast of Maui taken by a student in 4th grade at Lomond View Elementary in Pleasant View, UT; a butterfly taken by a 7th grader at Hommocks Middle School in Larchmont, NY; and an iguana in Puerto Rico shot by a high school senior at Princeton High School in Princeton, NJ.
