UPY 2017 Behaviour - Highly Commended
'The festive table' - Mikko Saareila

The pike had already been partially eaten when I arrived. I stayed farther away waiting for the sunset. While twilight was descending signal crayfish crawled from their holes starting their meal. It seemed that some of them spent more time fighting over the meal than eating. I carefully began to take pictures and finally got close enough to obtain the desired images. Vuoksi, my hometown river. had given the best again.

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: Creepy behaviour and an expertly crafted photograph. A very strong contender in a fiercely competitive category.
