A stunning male Firecrest photographed earlier this year in a private wood near Wendover in Buckinghamshire.


A Firecrest in full song perched on a twig framed by beautiful bokeh has won ePHOTOzine's 'Photo of the Week' (POTW) accolade. 

Simply titled 'Firecrest - Regulus ignicapilla', it's a shot which, in our opinion, should be in a bird book as it's simply superb. It's been captured by site member NigelKiteley and it's one of the best examples of bird photography we've seen. The detail is stunning, with exquisite sharpness and a lovely out of focus background framing the bird with lovely soft hues. Even the branch the Firecrest is using as a perch is full of character, adding even more interest to the shot. 

All of our POTW winners receive a Samsung EVO Plus 64GB MicroSDXC card with an SD Adapter courtesy of Samsung. To be in with a chance of becoming our next POTW winner, simply upload an image to our gallery where you'll also find all of our past POTW winners.

Plus, going forward, we will also announce a new 'Photo of the Year' winner who'll win a Samsung Portable SSD T7. Each POTW winner, 52 in total, will then have their image shared in a new POTW forum where, in January 2022, we will ask you all to hit the 'like' button on your favourite images. Then, the ePHOTOzine team will count up the likes and our first 'Photo of the Year' winner will be announced.
