Stunning wildlife photos now on show at The Collection in Lincoln

The best wildlife photos from the past year

The Collection Museum in Lincoln is now displaying the 2020 Exhibition for the Wildlife Photography Competition, which saw hundreds of entries from amateur photographers.

The competition, run in partnership with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, had over 200 entries from a range of photographers across the UK.

Andrea Martin, exhibitions manager at The Collection, said: “The exhibition is amazing and we’re so delighted to have had so many entrants. This year, we’ve had such a breadth of entries showing such great talent; really inspirational!”

There are six categories to see at the exhibition, which are Lincolnshire Landscapes, Water World, Neighbourhood Wildlife, On Your Doorstep, Hidden Lincolnshire and Young Wildlife Photographer.

The amazing Swan on Fire picture is part of the exhibition.

Young Wildlife Photographer was won by Katy Read from Newcastle for her Spoilt Robin photo. She said: “I’m absolutely delighted! I really like this shot of a robin, as it was perched in the perfect place for a dark background with lots of contrast.

“It stayed there for long enough for me to find the perfect angle, and I could get really close to capture the feather detail.”
