A pair of bighorn sheep take a break from butting heads to pose for the camera. Penticton’s Bruce Turnbull was ready for the moment and captured this stunning photo and second place in the BC SPCA’s 2016 Wildlife-In-Focus photo contest in the Wild Settings category.

Participants were encouraged to submit photos into one of two categories: Backyard Habitats, in order to highlight our special relationship with wild animals in our backyards, and amazing Wild Settings that feature animals in their natural habitats.

“With more than 700 photos submitted, it was a challenge for the contest judges to highlight only a few of the many amazing photos celebrating B.C.’s diverse wildlife,” says BC SPCA chief scientific officer Dr. Sara Dubois. “We want to thank all the participants for sharing their amazing photos and helping to raise more than $13,800 for wild animals in need.”

First prize winners in both judged categories will be featured in the Spring 2017 Animal Sense magazine and the top three in each category will receive great prizes that may include gifts from Broadway Camera, Beaty Biodiversity Museum, Canadian Geographic, Canadian Art, Greystone Books, Lens & Shutter Vancouver, LUSH, the Lab Vancouver, NatureKids BC, Outdoor Photography Canada, the Royal BC Museum, or a Wild ARC prize pack.

Check out the winners online to view the incredible photos captured by amateur photographers across British Columbia.
