No Credit to Me

The two pictures shown here are stunning and earned their owners the well deserved titles... wish I was half as clever with a camera and twice the patience...

The first garners the title British Wildlife Photographer of the Year for Ross Hoddinott and so well deserved for the detail in the image of a damsel fly at dawn.

The second one of the lovely, gorgeous red Squirrel got Will Nicholls the title of Young British Wildlife Photographer Under 18.

Sadly these guys are fighting a battle against the American Grey Squirrel and some do-gooders are saying no to eradication of the grey squirrel which would then give the red squirrel a fighting chance.

If you want to see more of these pictures, and I wish I could go, then it is at Hoopers Gallery until October 16th.

Envy, Envy, Envy.... back to practising...

I love the squirrel one too. We are fortunate to still have so many here.
