Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis), Jokulsarlon - Iceland 

Canon 1D MK4, 500mm Lens, F5.6, 1.4x converter, 1/500 sec, ISO 400

 This beautiful male snow bunting was singing his heart out on a gorgeous June morning at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland. Ok - the image wasn't taken in December but the memories of this little bird, the idyllic location and the sheer joy and privilege of observing and photographing wildlife and nature are a fitting end to a year of many wonderful experiences.
