Thank you to everyone who submitted photographs to the July ‘Macro’ themed competition. This month the competition was very tough, and rigorous voting needed to be taken to decide our final winner.
Despite the fantastic variety of weird and wonderful insect subjects sent through for this month’s competition, these two lovely ladybirds certainly stood out. It was down to a tight vote but we finally have our winner:
FIRST PLACE PRIZE
David Rees – Ladybird
SECOND PLACE WINNER
William Richardson – A Walk in the Rain
Taken with a Nikon D300S + 105mm f/2.8D, 1/250s, f/8, ISO200. William wins a £25 Grays of Westminster Gift Certificate!
THIRD PLACE RUNNER-UP
Alessandro Zavarise – Spider Web
Taken in his garden at sunrise on a D5200 + 60mm f/2.8G AF-S, 1/320s, f/3.2
FOURTH PLACE RUNNER-UP
Chris Colverd – Leaf Insect
Taken on a Nikon D300 + 105mm f/2.8, 1/40s, f/9. Chris said, “This was taken on my small Green Gate in my garden. At first I thought it was an actual leaf and was about to brush it off, when I saw what it really was!”
