..... and the winner is....

"In Velvet (http://www.pbase.com/sam_blackie/image/49896869/original.jpg)" by Hauff

extremely well deserved! :D For me this photo really stood out from the moment I first saw it. Congratulations Bryan!

In Velvet my have been the overall winner but the rest of the voting was very close. It was nice to see a really even distribution of votes once again - I think that is a testament to the high quality of submissions we receive for these contests.

Second place by a wisker was number 13 (white tailed deer (http://www.pbase.com/sam_blackie/image/49368812/original.jpg)) by dancad. Finally, one vote behind dancad was number 30 (owl with the scary eyes (http://www.pbase.com/sam_blackie/image/50007241/original.jpg)) by our very own IanD.

Congratulations to them all and to everyone else that entered!

Congratulations. A great photo and one that in my opinion fit the wildlife aspect of this contest perfectly. Personally I voted on #30 as a winner.

But all great photos.

Thanks to everyone who entered and voted in this competition. It is an honor to have been selected as the "2005 Wildlife Photographer of the Year" here on POTN. I want to congratulate Dan as well, his picture of the doe and fawns was an amazing capture and more than deserves a standing ovation. This was an excellent contest full of first rate pictures and kudos to Big_B for running such a quality contest. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing many more excellent pictures provided by all of you on the board in the coming year.
Best Regards: Bryan

To everyone that entered, well captured. As a lot of folks know, I'm a sucker for any type of deer. Bryan and Dan, excellent images. Not only winners on the small screen but worthy of being on anyones wall.
Now let's get out there and prepare for the 2006 Competition!:):)

The top 3 were all my best choice also, however only voted for 2. No point voting all the same ones, and keeping the scores even. All were fantastic, and even the next 30 odd photos were brilliant.
