Focusing On Wildlife

Yes, these are all of the winners from the 25 fortnightly competitions held in 2017. That’s why you will almost certainly have seen some of them before.

Without disparaging anything here, it is disappointing that “wildlife” is understood to be only land mammals and birds, which together represent a very small percentage of the number of species on our planet. No marine life, no insects or other invertebrates, no plants or fungi … We have seen some excellent insect photography in the fortnightly competitions.
