Yesterday I received more good news. The tadpole picture shown here below received the first prize in the category “compact cameras” in the Our World Underwater 2014 photo and video competition.
The picture was taken last spring in a small canal in Lovendegem (Belgium). A huge amount of tadpoles was present at that time and tadpoles of the common toad often swim in schools. From below it looks like they are flying overhead. You can see some more of the common toad (Bufo bufo) tadpole images in a previous blog post. The results of the competition can be seen here or here.
Since I won a 10-day dive cruise in Papua New Guinea, this is a good excuse to visit this area very soon!
