The winners of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2009 have been announced today. The overall winner of the title “British Wildlife Photographer of the Year” and the £5000 main prize was Ross Hoddinott who took the beautiful shot of a damselfly sillhouette (above).
The aim of the awards are not only to recognise and celebrate the talents of photographers of all nationalities practising in the UK but also to highlight the wealth and diversity of the nature in Britain.

All the winning images will be on display at the Hoopers Gallery in London until October 16th before going on tour around the UK.
