For me the best one yet of the Water Voles, i like the way the b/g darkens towards the rhs and keeps the eye focused on the Vole.

Best water vole I have seen on here Sylvia. Rich in tones and exposure spot on and the added action as it eats. Looking at HC's and EC's this has to be in there with them or no justice at all. Well thought out and planned shot and thus executed so well, the timing was spot on as you have caught it lifting the apple and sharp water droplets.
Shortlisted for sure, fantastic capture

A delightful image of this adorable little creature, this is one of your very best images IMHO and fully deserves all the accolades it has received. 11 user awards on here must be a record for this site, well done

12 User Awards and over 100 votes. I try to understand this site and it fails me when I see the same people getting awards. Merit where merit is due
Best shot of 2010 Award if ther was one.

This is really the best image I have seen of this guy - I attended two workshops in Kent & achieved no where near the quality you have here. Perfection.
