BBC Wildlife Camera-trap Photo of the Year 2012

Animal Portraits and overall winner: Leopard path by Zhou Zhefeng, China.

This beautiful image of a Chinese leopard taken by Zhou Zhefeng for a project funded by the Shanxi Wocheng Institute of Ecology and Environment, is a worthy Overall and Animal Portraits Category Winner, securing the top prize of £3,000.

Although the data bar wasn't turned on, I am assured that the camera used was a Ltl Acorn 5210A

Go to the BBC Wildlife Magazine gallery to see all the other winners.


  1. The leopard photo is astoundingly beautiful! I also particularly like "Hare in a Storm" although it makes the point that there is a huge amount of luck involved, which gives us all a chance I suppose.

    "No prizes were awarded in the British category – so we’re challenging UK camera-trappers to up the ante next year!"

    Really looking forward to getting a 6210MGX very soon now. I'm justifying the cost by planning to alternate as a security camera to watch over my motorbikes as well as a nature camera.

    1. Hi Jimbo

      I hope you'll get a chance to enter this next year.

      You'll love the post I'm about to publish. I've just taken the mystery out of sending emails via SMTP.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
