I know it's on tonight, as I always watch it for the five day forecast.  ;D

Never entered as they require a print and can't be bothered.  :(

Did think about entering but not had any spare time recently (hence not entered the weekend comp for few weeks either).

Just seen the 12 finalists though and there are some great shots. I think my favourite thus far is of the butterfly although the snowy squirrel was goodas well as the one of the deer and squirell in low light.

No, it has to be the mice. How difficult was it to get all of them like that.  :tup:

I have had a look, how hard it must be to be a Judge in this situation !.... I personally think the June flowers are great, The July Swan picture has in my view technical problems !!, but I can't decide between the mice & the squirrel as my choice.......... :legit:

I agree, tough to choose, the cobweb is fantastic and very well spotted, you could just wander past that opportunity so easilly...  but as said the mice shot is so nice, maybe they are stuffed lol :)

Always have my eyes open to cobwebs, but when they have dew or ice on them they standout for miles, you just can't miss them.  ;D

Just took a look and was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong they're all lovely photos which anyone would be proud to have taken but I remember seeing last years finalists and being much more impressed and really unable to pick a winner.

I agree with you Peter. I was going to enter a seal photo taken at Donna Nook, but the T&Cs put me of, along with the fact that it probably wouldn't have managed the top 10 :).
