On the Third Day of Christmas: In Praise of the Natural World

courtesy of M Shed website

A visit to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition has become a Christmas/New Year holiday ritual.  Today we managed to squeeze it in during a sunny spell between a hail storm and drizzle.

The photography is always breathtaking (particularly when you learn of the conditions endured by the photographers to obtain their prize winning shots).  I was reminded once again that we live in an extraordinarily complex and beautiful world.

To view all the exhibits click here or, if you live in Bristol, you can catch the exhibition in the M Shed until 23 February 2014.

And do let me know which are your favourites.  Mine included Showdown (white vulture), Travelling Companions (dugong & golden trevallies), The President's Crown (a 3,200! year old sequoia tree), Primate Moments (rhesus monkeys) and Camouflage (ptarmigan) - but I could go on and on.

Although you don't need to leave a comment if you don't want to, it's always interesting to hear what other people think of what I've posted, or even to know who has dropped in.
