Grand prize winning nature photo from Hungary

 'Flying Egrets'More than 6000 images were sent to the BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition run by California Academy of Sciences.

The Grand Prize went to a Hungarian photographer Zsolt Kudich who shot his photo in the Danube-Drava National Park’s Gemenc Forest capturing great egrets.

It is like a painting – said one of the judges and we strongly agree with that.
