Bird Photographer of the Year Awards 2017

The winning entry of a pink flamingo feeding their young (shown here), was taken by Alejandro Prieto Rojas at Rio Legartos, Mexico and earned him the top prize of £5,000 (approx. $6500).

Chris Packham, head judge on the panel of experts, said, “The standard of photography was extremely high and myself and the other judges were treated to some fantastic bird photographs, but congratulations must go to Alejandro Prieto Rojas for his sublime image of flamingos, an incredible balance of color, composition and emotion.”
