Leopard photo knocks spots off the competition

Judges were spoilt for choice in Marwell Wildlife’s prestigious Photographer of the Year competition.

‘Leopard cub in the light’ beat off fierce competition to be the overall winning image. The fantastic photograph of the Hampshire Zoo’s Amur leopard cub ‘Kanika’ was taken by George Wheelhouse of Flitwick in Bedfordshire.

George said: “I’m overwhelmed - I can't believe it! I visited the zoo for one day with my family and never believed I’d get a shot like this.”
