translating biophilia into a love of life

I struggle to find words

The results have been announced for the 2008 European Wildlife Photographer of the Year award, which means more nature photography!  While all the photos are stunning and surprising, I found the energy and setting captured in Duell im Trio – the runner-up in the Mammals category – most impressive:

The overall winner is called “Bush Meat”:

Bush Meat by David Maitland, Scotland

I struggle to find words to describe the image.  Others have called it poignant, revolting, alarming and (my personal fave) “like roasting children”.  My heart feels sad just looking at it.

To try to end on a happier note: Sadie sent me a clipping about swimming tigers, which quickly launched me into an internet images search.  Below are a few of the images I found.  Not exactly award winners, but I find them heartwarming nonetheless.
