1 GRAVE­YARD HAUNT

Dur­ing an au­tumn visit to Bromp­ton Ceme­tery, Lon­don, I spot­ted a red fox. The first im­age I took wasn’t very clear, so I de­cided to wait around for an­other photo op­por­tu­nity. The mam­mal ap­peared to be sur­vey­ing its ter­ri­tory, giv­ing me a sec­ond chance at a pic­ture. Tim Fop­pele, Lon­don

2 FEEL­ING IN­SPIRED

Though I have owned an SLR cam­era for two years, my macro lens has re­mained largely un­used af­ter failed at­tempts to get de­cent pho­tos with it. But af­ter read­ing an ar­ti­cle on macro photograph­y in BBC Wildlife Mag­a­zine, I de­cided to give it an­other go. It took many at­tempts, but I was thrilled to get this pic­ture when I stum­bled across a pair of la­dy­birds. Joanne Iredale, Mid­dle­sex

3 AF­TER-DARK DIS­COV­ERY

While on a night walk in a cof­fee plan­ta­tion on the fringes of Shar­a­vathi Rain­for­est, Kar­nataka, In­dia, I came across a thriv­ing pop­u­la­tion of Mal­abar glid­ing frogs. I wanted to pho­to­graph this in­di­vid­ual on an an­thurium, and I took my shot at this an­gle to cap­ture the de­tail of the am­phib­ian and the plant. An­gad Achappa, Ban­ga­lore, In­dia

4 MIS­FOR­TUNE AT MARSH­LAND

While at RSPB Rain­ham Marshes, Es­sex, in Novem­ber I wit­nessed a grey heron at­tempt­ing to eat a lit­tle grebe. The for­mer has a some­what catholic diet so it came as no real sur­prise. The grebe put up a valiant fight, but in the end the poor bird suf­fered a pro­longed death. How­ever, de­spite the heron’s ef­forts, which lasted the best part of an hour, I don’t be­lieve it suc­ceeded in swal­low­ing its quarry. Ed Hutch­ings, Suffolk

5 CLOSE EN­COUNTER

Dur­ing a July evening at Lake Clark Na­tional Park and Pre­serve, Alaska, USA, I walked down a for­est path that opened up into a clear­ing and saw a male brown bear ahead of me head­ing along the edge of a stream. I de­cided to lie flat on the ground hop­ing that the bear would con­tinue to­wards me, and held my cam­era just above ground level to get this per­spec­tive. Kevin Mor­gans, Mersey­side

6 RAIN­FOR­EST DAZ­ZLER

I took this photo of a vi­o­letear when it rested on a leaf in the gar­den of our rain­for­est lodge in Rio Save­gre Na­tional Park, Costa Rica, dur­ing a shower. The hum­ming­bird was a dom­i­nant species at the feed­ers – we of­ten saw it chas­ing other birds away. Martin John­son, Herts
