      This week the POTW goes to Tobie for his stunning portrait of a Brown-hooded Kingfisher.

      I am not a wildlife photographer. So, an image like this is so amazing to me. In fact, this entire week was filled with some pretty awesome examples of wildlife and nature photography.

      Tobie’s shot is just exquisite, and that’s really all I can say.

      A forum thread that you should definitely check out for some wonderful insect nature photography is “Throwdown – Butterflies”.

      My two runner-ups this week are nature related as well.

      My first runner-up is “Resting Elk” by Bruce Gordon. His image is also perfectly composed. It was very difficult to pick between this image and Tobie’s bird photograph.

      The second runner-up is “Å Vakre Norge II” by Simon Parks. It’s a beautiful shot that is well executed.

      I’ll post links to the runner-ups below.
