Every year the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition is held (and every year I intend to submit some images, but of course I never get around to it). The 2012 competition is now over—the 100 winning photos (from the 48,000 entries) have now been chosen and go on exhibit at London’s Museum of Natural History in October. You can read more about the competition and show here: Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
The BBC Nature page has also posted a slideshow of some of the best images. It is well worth checking out as the photos are wonderful. Unfortunately there is only one macro photo in the slideshow and I had to laugh when I saw it because it seems awful familiar! The image (which is a great photo) is below. If you need a hint as to why I laughed, check-out my previous post Not for the squeamish: macro photography of a feeding mosquito.
Of course the photo above is better than mine…so I think I need to go out and get myself bitten agai…I’m sure I can do better!
