Gr8at: 2019 British Ecological Society photography competition winners

It was only just over a month go that I did my last photography post (Gr8at: Wildlife Photographer of the Year), but I always like sharing great photographs with you all. These are from the 2019 British Ecological Society, as seen from on the Guardian website. Which do you think won? Do you have a favourite?

6720

Red night by Roberto García Roa (University of Valencia), taken in Madagascar. García Roa certainly got closer than most people would!

 

3886

For the love of Flamingos by Peter Hudson (Penn State University), taken over Lake Magadi, Kenya. A heart-shaped delight.

 

4394

Fluorescence by Roberto García Roa (University of Valencia), taken in Madagascar. With purple being my favourite colour and scorpion being my poker nickname I just had to include this.

 

4608 (1)

Watchful by Khristian V. Valencia (University of Antioquia), taken in San Cipriano nature reserve, Colombia. A nicely taken shot of the clouded snake (Sibon nebulatus).

 

3298

Small warrior by Roberto García Roa (University of Valencia), taken in Malaysia. The black background works so well.

 

6000

Why did the sloth cross the road? by Andrew Whitworth (Osa Conservation and University of Glasgow), taken in Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Maybe it was to see Zootropolis, where sloths memorably feature.

 

4608

Harlequin by Khristian V Valencia (University of Antioquia), taken in San Cipriano nature reserve, Colombia. As they are heading towards extinction, we must cherish Harlequin frogs while we can. 

 

5943

Are you seeing the same as me by Pablo Javier Merlo (Nacional University of Córdoba), taken from Beagle Channel, in Argentina. A cow and a chimango have a relaxed moment looking out on the Andes.

    • I can just imagine the two listening to some Otist Redding whie they’re chilling haha. And yeah, that sloth shot is so memorable. They’re not exactly the most active animals so you’d think they’d be in more photos.
