Wildlife Gallery Online

Andy Rouse - Rival Kings (2006) plus Shell logoLondon's Natural History Museum has organized an online gallery of winning, runner-up and highly commended images in the Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award 2006. Not only are there the two main awards (adult and junior), but also a number of special awards, including the Eric Hosking Award and the Gerald Durrell Award for Endangered Wildlife. So, a feast of superb wildlife photography to be viewed worldwide, thanks to the Internet. And you can vote for your favourite. (Just click the title link.) To illustrate this item, I've combined a magnificent entry by top wildlife photographer Andy Rouse with the Shell logo, as Shell is the sponsor for this award. I used to thoroughly enjoy Andy's TV show of a few years ago. More, please.

I didn't look at the entire gallery, so I can't say; but oil in the right light can look very beautiful, if deadly. Have you ever seen a mass of sunlit greenbottles on fresh horse droppings? It's a hell of a lot prettier than "modern" art.
As for Big Macs, what else would you feed to all those unhealthy couch potatoes who gawk at fit young things jumping around at the Olympic Games? Salad?
