Three Vancouver Idland photographers had top-three finishes in the BC SPCA’s 2020 Wildlife-in-Focus photography contest.
The featured categories were Backyard Habitats, which highlighted the special relationship with wild animals and backyards, and Wild Settings, which featured animals in their natural habitats. More than 956 photos were submitted province wide.
D. Ross Fisher, a Campbell River photographer submitted a photo of a baby robin being fed by its mother. That photo was selected for second place in the Backyard Habitats category by judges.
Sandy Stirling, Nanoose Bay, took third place for the Backyard Habitat category with her photo of a tree frog.
Deborah Freeman, Nanoose Bay, took third in the Wild Settings category with her photo of a mink.
Winner’s photos will appear on greeting cards that will soon be available through the BC SPCA’s online store.
“We want to thank all the participants for sharing their amazing photos and helping to raise more than $32,920 to help the BC SPCA care for injured and orphaned wildlife,” said Erin Ryan, BC SPCA research co-ordinator.
For Backyard Habitats, Thomas Haslinger from Coldstream took first place, while in the Wild Settings category, Joshua Wolfe from New Westminster placed first.
