Re: Wildlife Photographer of the Year

I think Photo Owl is probably right here. I don't know what the mix of amateur vs professonal is, but I guess if you're the type who spends 3 days in a hide in Greenland or Sweden (or somewhere very cold anyway), you're more than likely a serious professional. And as we know, they do tend to gravitate towards Canikon.

Let's not take anything away from those who endure serious deprivation for their art/business, and not only witness a rare event but still manage to get a fantastic shot. I know I wouldn't be prepared to do that.
