You seized the moment perfectly capturing this wee squirrel in such an amusing 'pose', Trev.
Well done.
Ronnie.

Thanks everyone, just had some great news by email! Copy below.

Dear Trevor



I am pleased to inform you that both your entries to A Magazine's international photo contest have made the final shortlist in the Color in the natural world category. This is a great achievement, especially given the extremely high standard of submissions.



In order for us to proceed with the difficult task of choosing the winner, and to ensure that there are no unforeseen complications, we just need to complete a simple piece of administration.

I would therefore be grateful if you could send us confirmation regarding the items mentioned below.



1 Please confirm that the images were taken by yourself and that you own the copyright.
2 Please confirm that if you win, you are able to travel in order to attend the Yellowstone workshop on the aforementioned fixed dates (January 22 to 29, 2013). No alternative dates or prizes are available. (Details of flight arrangements will be discussed with the winner).



As stated in the terms and conditions of the competition, if you are unable to answer yes to either of the above, we will unfortunately have to remove your entries from the shortlist as you will no longer be eligible.



Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this request.



Once again, congratulations on making it through to the final stages. Guest judge Chris Weston was particularly enthusiastic about the excellent standard.

We hope to contact the winner in late October, although no official announcement will be made until December.



Thank you for your interest in our competition and best of luck in the final round of judging!





Regards
