Bug photo wins the young British Wildlife Photography Award
A stunning photograph of a Blue leaf-beetle taken by 14 year old Adam Hawtin has won the Young British Wildlife Photography Award 2010.
Established in 2009, the British Wildlife Photography Awards were created to celebrate the talents of both amateur and professional photographers, while simultaneously highlighting the great wealth and diversity of British natural history. This year there was a Young Photography competition as well as an adult photography competition.

For the first time to accompany this year’s Awards, a stunning coffee table book has been published titled ‘British Wildlife Photography Awards: Collection 1’. Showcasing the 10 separate categories covering everything from marine wildlife and animal behavior to creepy crawlies and urban wildlife, the book beautifully reveals the unseen splendor and surprising diversity of Britain’s wildlife.
