The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers have announced the winners of the Nature in Action Photography Competition.
The winning photograph (below) of a Eurasian sparrowhawk trying to catch a Eurasian Jay was taken by Cecilie Stuedal from Innlandet, Norway
Cecilie said: “Kick the can" features a Eurasian sparrowhawk/spurvehauk (Accipiter nisus) trying to catch a Eurasian Jay / Nøtteskrike (Garrulus glandarius). It was shot with a Nikon D500, Nikkor 180-400mm, ISO 1000, f/4.0 and 1/2500 sec in Dalen, Telemark, in Norway.”
Cecilie has won £100 plus 12 months membership to The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers (SINWP) organisation.
Colin Jones, The Society's Director says: “This competition was popular with images coming in from all over the World, Cecilie’s battling birds’ image was chosen as the winning image as the action in mid-air captures the theme of the competition very well.”
