Wildlife Photographer Wins Award With Ant Photograph

The winner of the 2010 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year award has just been announced and it is Hungarian Bence Matea, winning for his photograph of leafcutter ants.

Working in Costa Rica, Matea found that the leafcutter ants worked only at night. With some creative backlighting with a flash, he managed to get the winning shot. And also, he got a case of chiggers. That is dedication to your art.

The contest is supported by London’s Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine.
