'Park Life' by Kyle Moore

A stunning image of a fox sipping from a puddle under streetlight has taken top spot in this year’s prestigious RSPCA Young Photographer Awards.

Youngsters aged between nine and 18 were invited to capture the animal kingdom on camera for this year’s competition and the top prize was taken by 18-year-old Kyle Moore’s image ‘Park Life’.

The teenager from Lowestoft, Suffolk, took the image of the fox at dusk in a park in Ilford, London. The winning image beat off fierce competition from thousands of other photographs to win the top prize in this year’s competition.

Kyle said: “I’m shocked to have won - but very, very happy. It is all just sinking in. I love photography and have been doing it for about five years no. I would love to make it a career."

Describing the scene when he took the picture, he added: “Each evening, shortly after sunset, the foxes in a central London park emerge. They search for any food left over by occupants of the park, before finally heading off into the streets for a night of foraging for food scraps. In this image the fox is having a drink from a small puddle at the park entrance. Foxes are like the ghosts of the city - so I am pleased the ghosting effect has worked so well in this picture. I’m really proud of it.”

Attracting entries from youngsters aged up to 18 from across England and Wales, this year’s RSPCA Young Photographer Awards were judged by a panel of experts in wildlife photography led by Springwatch presenter Chris Packham.

Head judge Chris Packham said: “This winning image is simply stunning! It really stood out for all of us. It tells a story as it shows the fox coming out of the shadows drinking from a shallow puddle in streetlight. The timing was perfect and Kyle should be very proud!”
