Congratulations to Ann Strutton, the 2016 winner of the Ron Arnold Shield. To say that Ann was dumbstruck at winning would be an understatement, her word were “No way” repeated several times.
As usual Julie Lane took second place with her photograph of a Golden-rInged Dragonfly.
Just to prove that it wasn’t beginner’s luck, Ann Strutton also took third place with her picture of Sow in Bunsty Wood.
You can see the winners and shortlisted photos in the 2016 Photo Competition gallery.
