BWC Photo Comp 2014 "FAUNA FUN" Shortlist

OK, here it is... the second shortlist for our BWC 2014 Photographic competition. And this week we announce the final ten for our "Fauna Fun" category. This year Professional Wildlife Photographer David Llyod will be selecting his favourites to win each category. Check out his website, linked in his name, to see some amazing wildlife photography, David runs workshops here at the BWC, but is perhaps better known for his African wildlife photographs and inspiring black and whites. He currently has a book out "As long as there are animals" and I can highly recommend it!

Fauna fun has always been a "fun" one to look through the photos, and we had a good selection to chose from this year. Here is the shortlisted ten.

  1. Oh my goodness! Pleasantly surprised to see one of my photographs have selected. I appreciated this so much. Means the world to me. Thank you!

    Particularly proud of this photograph for 2 reasons. One is I just adore the red squirrels and this was the first opportunity in my 40+ years to photograph them.

    Secondly I have Congenital Myasthenia Syndrome, a muscle weakening disease that challenges my every effort to take photographs. Personally speaking it can affect my limbs (ie arms & legs) & eyes. This means that there are times I cannot lift the camera or even focus properly and this was one of those moments where I was really struggling. Just as well I love a challenge. :-)

  2. Furthermore to my previous post I must congratulate the other competitors. Their photographs are fabulous! I have a favourite but that would be telling. Good luck to everyone!:-)

  3. Chuffed to see my picture in the shortlist! And good luck to everyone
