Lions Nature Watch Photo Competition Winners

This morning Lion Ian Forster and Lion Dave Murray did the prize giving for the two First Prize winners of the Lions Nature Watch Photo Competition.  First prize in the Wild Flower Category went to Elysia Chilvers for her beautiful photo of a dandelion clock. Elysia, now aged 10, was presented with her prize of a Canon IXUS 185 digital camera by Lion Ian. Ian organised the competition and was the head judge. Along with the camera Elysia was given a certificate and an A4 size print of her winning photo. In order to keep to the “social distancing” guidelines Lion Ian employed his long pond net to pass the prize over to Elysia. First prize in the Wildlife Category went to Alex Glen for his stunning photo of a bee on an allium flower. Alex, age 4, took the photo in his back garden using his mum’s mobile phone. He too was awarded a Canon IXUS 185 digital camera, a certificate and an A4 print of his winning photo. Lion Ian commented on the exceptional quality of the winning photos and the overall high standard set by all of the photos that were entered into the competition.
