Roy Mangersnes - Swoop of the sea scavenger

Well, now it is official, at least some of it is. I was lucky to get awarded second year in a row in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The official award cerimony will be held on Wednesday evening, but the commended images have already been published on the competition website. My image this year is showing a White-tailed Eagle swooping down to grab a fish from the fjord surface in Flatanger, Norway. Tens of thousands of images are taken every year of these birds at this brilliant site. Therefore I feel even more proud to be awarded for an image of this magnificent bird of prey. I will also use this opertunity to congatulate my fellow photographers in the NPB, Sven and Sandra, also being awarded in the WPOTY 2011. See all the commended images on the link below. The winning images will be announced shortly. Link to the commended images.
