I was swimming with this turtle at Lady Elliot Island on the Great Barrier Reef when he flipped me the bird! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The funniest and most popular photography competition in the world – The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2020 has reached its conclusion and is proud to announce that the OVERALL WINNER of this year’s competition is Mark Fitzpatrick, for his amazing photograph entitled Terry the Turtle flipping the bird.
Up against 7,000 incredible entries from all over the world, Mark’s image emerged as a clear favourite with the judges! The image was captured when he was swimming with the turtles off Lady Elliot Island in Queensland, Australia. In a stroke of brilliance, Mark managed to catch the moment when Terry’s flipper is pulling back as he swims towards the camera, which makes it appear as if the turtle is indeed flipping Mark the bird and really means it!
