storybook wolf

In 2010 I wandered off to Snibston Museum, which used to be in North Leicesterhire. The museum was hosting the winning entries in the International Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

It was a bit distressing to see the sign above. It was also very distressing to know they were closing the museum down. It was a wonderful place with some terrific, if under-fed, exhibits.

The image that was disqualified can be seen here – it really is a stunning photograph, regardless of the acting credentials of the wolf.
