Congratulations to our Winners!
There are many faces to wildlife in Canada. From a squirrel in an urban park to a delicate butterfly lighting on a flower to a hardy Arctic shrub, there is much to appreciate at every turn. The 2009 Reflections of Nature photo contest celebrated the amazing biodiversity Canada has to offer. Entrants submitted their photographs in four categories: flora, fauna, landscape and urban wildlife. Winners will receive a poster of their photograph courtesy of Posterjack.ca. They may also win a print by renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman, prizes supplied by the Computer Media Group and the opportunity to have their photographs displayed as part of a travelling exhibition co-presented by the Biosphère, Montreal’s environment museum.
Grand Prize Winner
Congratulations to Scott Smith of Orangeville, Ont., who snapped this winning photo near Angus, Ontario. He watched and waited while the ant climbed up a blade of grass and onto the snake, and then back down again. “The snake didn’t move the entire time. It was amazing to see,” he says. “I love watching wildlife and glimpses like these make it priceless.”
