Hi Maximilian.
Wow you weren't kidding with the disturbing nature of the shot. :'( :mad: 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.

I don't know my wildlife competitions, but I believe these were the finalists that were previously announced:

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

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.
