A-level student Will Anderson from Dyffryn Ceiriog near Llangollen has had his photographs of the natural environment in north Wales showcased in an international competition in Azerbaijan, where his work, including Wild Welsh Stallion, was placed 9th out of 100 finalists.
This shot, Love in the Reeds, was taken in the Nant Mawr Quarry. Will said: "It took a lot of searching to find a pair which were willing to be photographed!"
Will tracked down this cricket by following its call. 'When he was found I immediately noticed his eyes. He has a very piercing glare for an insect,' he said.
This Red Kite appeared out of nowhere while Will was watching the Spitfire display at the Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells. Will, who is hoping to study zoology at university, has been involved in setting up a photography club at his school, Ysgol Dinas Bran in Llangollen.
This 'garden figure' has lived in Will's garden for seven years before being discovered. The competition, Children's Eyes on Earth, had 4,000 entries from young people aged 17 and under from 90 countries on the theme I Love Nature and I Fear Pollution. Will was one of 13 entrants invited to attend the competition exhibition in Baku.
