She’s done it again! Mandy’s picture of an iridescent starling has been selected as a Finalist in the ‘Wildlife in the Garden’ section of the latest International Garden Photographer of the Year competition.
So congratulations Mandy (AKA Hazel). A Finalist in last year’s competition and with Commended and Highly Commended entries in three previous IGPOTY competitions, my contention that she’s just been lucky doesn’t hold water anymore. Sour grapes then.
You can see the winners on the IGPOTY site http://www.igpoty.com/competition09/winners_wildlifegarden.asp?parent=winners, and Howard has just found a press release that includes Mandy’s picture on the BBC News Magazine http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35476291. Do take a look.
Well done Mandy!
