Wildlife Photographer Of The Year

5 Comments

I received an email yesterday saying that two of my images (out of 20) have made it through to the final round of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition at the Natural History Museum. It’s better than I expected but still doesn’t mean that they will get through. Anyway fingers crossed!

As I haven’t shown these two before I thought now would be a good time!

Seeing the Meerkat image again made me miss them a little bit! I haven’t really looked through my meerkat images that much for a while as I have been busy with other stuff but it now seems like a long time ago that I was out in the Kalahari watching these guys every day!

As a lot of my WPOTY submissions were Meerkat images I thought i’d also share a couple more of my favorites that got rejected.

I hope you enjoy them and please like my facebook page for more pictures! Robin Hoskyns Photography Facebook Page
