Lighting the way home: The latest winners from the WildArt photo competition
Winners of the latest wildlife photography competition awards announced.
WildArt have announced the winners for the second part of this year's wildlife photography competition. The theme for this month is 'light', and has been won by Boldizsár Szűcs from Hungary with a great shot of a European bee-eater in mid-flight.
Each month until the end of the year, WildArt will announce ten category winners. These winners will then go forward to the final, where one of the category winners will be crowned the overall champion.
