International Wildbird Photographer 2008 Award were announced this week. They include gentoo penguins, a graceful whooper swan in midflight, and the inside of the huge bill of a dalmatian pelican. The above is a Black Grouse - it won the bird behaviour section. The photo was taken by a Norwegian, Tom Schandy. This is a male doing a gig!
The collection of all past winning photos 2003-2008 is here.
