LOL know what you mean about No 3 - there's something in the facial expression that gets me - my other half laughed when he saw it, said that it reminded him of a few from work

My ultimate favourite has to be the eagles though - awesome shot, that...

Re: Wild Life Photograher Of The Year

Well I cannot make my mind up! I like the eagles and the shot of the frog and the snake. But I suppose the eagles had to be more difficult to capture.

I wonder how long I will last beofre it hurts sitting on the fence!

Cheers

Chris

I agree with the comments on number 3 ( I'd use it as an avatar if I didn't know it was copyrightted to **** and so widely seen !) but I also agree with the comments on the last - Awsome !

Re: Wild Life Photograher Of The Year

The eagles .... no, the macaque .... deadlock is really good .... make your mind up .... right, it's got to be the macaque

The expression on it's face is lovely, slightly wry as if it thinks the photographer is doing something daft

Cheers,

JohnGG

Graham,

In my opinion "deadlock" (number 4) and the eagles (number 5) are the best there. They both capture their "moments" perfectly.

Re: Wild Life Photograher Of The Year

I don't have a favourite, simply can't choose.

They're all rather amazing pictures.
