A little while ago, I posted that I'd entered the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's photographic competition and was thrilled to be picked as one of the five finalists from the pool of entries.
After the competition had closed and all the votes had been counted up from the various places that the photos were on display at, I and the other finalists were invited along to the trust's centre at Potteric Carr Nature Reserve in Doncaster for the results and prizegiving.
While I had a feeling my squirrel had done well, I had no idea how well, and I was bowled over to be declared the overall winner in the wildlife category. I was a bit chuffed, to say the least.
The evening was also a great opportunity to meet and chat with the other finalists, including those in the junior category, where the standard of photos was exceptional - wildlife photography looks safe in the hands of the next generation.
Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and more details can be found here:
