Summer Photo Comp

Blue bottle jellyfish, dragonflies, pelicans and even a body-boarding kangaroo were among the mix of creatures great and small that caught the eye of local photographers vying for a prize in The Canberra Times summer photo competition.

Judges are currently sorting through a shortlist of finalists from more than 1000 images received from readers over the summer months.

Today’s animal-theme batch of entries includes ‘‘Skippy the beach kangaroo’’, photographed by Lisa Parnell of Wagga Wagga. Margaret Morris, of Flynn, immortalised a dragonfly among the cool ferns on a hot day over summer.

Winners of the cash prizes (first $500, second $300, and third $200) will be announced next week.
