Some stunning images in that competition. Couldn't help but notice the winning image looked a bit familiar!

Clearly shot at the same place (Wildarena Events) as mine.

I prefer the number two shot of the Rhino.

2nd Place see HERE
3rd Place see HERE
Highly Commended images see HERE

Just goes to show that it's not all about the gear. Winner was shot on a Nikon entry level camera with a Tamron lens!

I think I agree about the rhino. I tend to prefer critters doing something at this level of competition, and it's got the contrast with the birds. There are some awfully good also-rans too...tough choices.

Great shots. There some amazing photographers out there - and in here.

For example @Mark0 should totally go for Outdoor Photographer of the year. IMHO
