More good news from the contest front. This, I assume familiar, image of a Red Squirrel made it to the runner-up position of the January edition of the online Wild Wonders contest.
Every month, the jury choose the finalists for the contest in four categories. It is then up to the visitors of the website to vote for their favourite image. I got two images in the finals, this one, and a backlit short-eared owl. As said, the squirrel made it to the runner-up position. Many thanks therefore to all of you who voted for it!
You may want to take a look at this months finalists here. There are again amazing images to be voted for, including ones by Dutchies Andrew George, Leon Baas, Heike Odermatt and Edwin Kats.
The prestigious Wild Wonders project, initiated by Peter Cairns, Florian Möllers and Staffan Widstrand, has a very noble aim. A quote from their website, which is definately worth a visit because of the amazing photographs that are showcased by the 58 participating photographers:
Wild Wonders of Europe is about sharing the amazing natural wonders of our continent with 700 million Europeans and the World! Our aim is so that we can all better reconnect to this wonderful heritage, enjoy it more and take care of it more wisely for the future.
