Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s annual photography competition is a highlight on the calendar for nature lovers from the region and this year is no different.

The 2018 competition came to a dramatic head earlier this month when the Trust’s judging panel decided on the winners and runners-up for each of the nine categories. From comedy partridges and starling murmurations to an emerging crane fly and magical hare, the nine winning photographs are shown as you scroll down.

They are the cream from more than 100 short-listed photographs, which were scrutinised by the panel who said that year on year the breadth and depth of images received from across the categories makes their task “a highly competitive and equally rewarding experience”.

Now it’s over to the public to choose which of these category winners will be the overall competition winner.

Community fundraising manager at Suffolk Wildlife Trust, Michael Strand, said: “A huge thank you to everyone who entered this year’s competition, our judges, prize givers and main sponsor Avantigas.”
