Hi Maximilian.
Wow you weren't kidding with the disturbing nature of the shot.  :'( >:( We keep getting adverts to adopt animal x or y, I don't want to adopt the animal, I want to provide the animal with a personal guard like a Seal or S.A.S.

Cheers, Graham.

Wonderful pic that I hate!  It is painfully evocative for me.  Damn poachers need to be skinned alive!

I don't know my wildlife competitions, but I believe these were the finalists that were previously announced:
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/gallery/2017/sep/12/wildlife-photographer-of-the-year-2017-finalists-in-pictures

Thought for sure the powerful / sad sea horse q-tip shot would win something.

Man that winning pic!! As a photograph I am not sure, as a striking and tragic image 10/10.

One of my favs is the pic with seahorse that is clinging to the Q-tip, "sewage surfer".
Beautiful and evocative at the same time.
