Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 awards

The Animal Portraits category - Jose Luis Rodriguez (Spain)
Mr Rodriguez won the Animal Portraits category and went on to win the top prize with this haunting image that the judges said captured the character of the wolf.

The Animals in their Environment category - Urmas Tartes (Estonia)
Urmas Tartes won the Animals in their Environment category for this image of a springtail, otherwise known as a "snow flea" navigating its way through delicate snowflakes.

For other great photos and more details:

I´m happy that both Spain and Estonia got the prizes. :)

    Thanks for stopping by! I just posted and really need to get to bed! I woke up at about midnight (dont know why???) and then finally finished that post with all the links (had to do them one by one!) at this moment! 5:54 am! Yikes!

    I am so happy that I was able to finally get an award (blog hug) to pass on to you...instead of you to me! You really are amazing!
