Outdoor photographer of the year 2010
Back in November I was delighted to be shortlisted as a possible category winner by Outdoor Photography in the Small World (macro) section of their first annual Outdoor Photographer of the Year awards. This was the first time I had entered a major competition and given that it attracted over 3000 images from 119 countries I was amazed that I made it to the final shortlist with this image of a male Red-veined Darter - Sympetrum fonscolombei adopting the obelisk position. Hopefully I can go one step further in the future!

The Water Stick Insect - Ranatra linearis in Cornwall
Many of us are aware of Stick Insects with their inherent ability of merging twig like into their surroundings, indeed a number of species are now naturalized in Cornwall. However few people are aware of our aquatic resident the Water Stick Insect - Ranatra linearis, a spectacular, if elusive opportunist lurking in our freshwater pools, ready to pounce on their unsuspecting prey.

The Grey Seal – Halichoerus grypus qualifies as the UKs largest land mammal as it regularly hauls itself out into isolated coves around the Cornish coast.
One such site is Mutton Cove, part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest & Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty at Godrevy, perched at the northern end of Hayle’s “3 miles of golden sands”. Here at Mutton Cove it is possible to observe these beautiful animals from the cliff top without disturbing them if you respect their need for a calm environment and follow a few simple rules.
