UPY  Behaviour - Highly Commended
'Common Toad Orgy' - Pekka Tuuri

I volunteered to be in a nature TV program for the Finnish Broadcasting Company. A fixed date for filming was set well in advance. Luckily the date was perfect in terms of common toad spawning. I found a fallen willow in the water and no less than five pairs of common toad were on the branches of the willow. The TV schedule let me shoot only for a few minutes but in that little time I was able to get a few decent images of the toads. The TV program was a success as well as these same toads were also documented with GoPros!
