Congratulations to Claas Nowak from Germany, who wins our November 2016 Photo of the Month event. Claas receives our $100 prize with this excellent image of a running red deer.
Claas commented on the picture: "While the rutting season of the red deer I spent three days and nights in a blind to take pictures of these majestic animals. On the third morning the dawn and the rising mist offered perfect conditions. In the first light of the day two deers entered the area and started to fight. But it was too far away from my blind and so I was only able to hear the sound of the colliding antlers. After some minutes the loser of the fight escaped and ran directly towards my blind. As he was near enough I was able to take a series of pictures of the running deer. This picture is my favorite one."
Claas wins our $100 prize.
The winner's picture as well as the top finalists will be published in the December 2016 issue of WPM in high definition – do not miss it!
