  • Winners : 2014 The British Wildlife Photography Awards*

  • The British Wildlife Photography Awards celebrates both the work of amateur and professional photographers who have captured the beauty and diversity of British wildlife. The winning picture The Tourist (above) was taken by Lee Acaster. His image depicts a Greylag Goose in London. "It was a real privilege to have such a close encounter with a wild bird in the very heart of London," explains Lee Acaster. "I vividly remember the excitement I felt as she patiently waited for me to get the shot, and I knew immediately this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, Im just grateful that she didn't lose interest as quickly as my children do when Im taking photographs of them."Overall Winner: The Tourist by Lee Acaster*
