This picture has won the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) 2011, award. It shows brown pelicans smothered in oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill. WPY is one of the most prestigious competitions in world photography. Organised by London’s Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine, it is now in its 47th year. See more images here.
I have another picture that resembles a friend when he surfs.
