Happy! For the fourth time I have won an award in the German photo contest of the GDT, European Wildlife Photographer of the Year. This time it is a second prize, a Runner up, in the category Other Animals. It is the image ‘Showtime’ showing three Banded darters waking up in the early morning on blades of grass. Picture was taken in September 2012.
I would have loved to join the award ceremony and the festival, but unfortunately I was prevented at the very last moment. What a shame. Nevertheless I feel extremely honored to be one of the winners. Nowadays with so many good pictures send in, chances of winning are getting smaller and smaller every year. Congrats to all the other winners! Feel free to take a look at all the winning images.
