Photography has always been such a big passion of mine, especially when linked with wildlife. So when I saw that the winners and finalists for the British Wildlife Photography Awards had just been announced, I had to share my favourites right away. The competition has been running since 2009, features 15 different categories and is open to both amateurs and professionals. Do you have a favourite? Can you guess the overall winner?
