The British Ecological Society announced the winners of its annual photography competition, with first place going to an image of a Malagasy tree boa. The photos are stunning and I wanted to share them.
“During my visit to Madagascar, I had the pleasure of finding this outstanding snake and photographing it.
“To offer a dramatic scenario reflecting the conditions that these snakes are suffering, I used an external red light as a source of light and severe blurring to capture the environment.” – Roberto Garcia Roa
The winning images and an additional 15 highly commended images, taken by international ecologists and students, celebrate the diversity of ecology; capturing flora and fauna from across the planet.
