UPY 2017 British Waters Compact - Highly Commended
'Spilt Level tadpoles' - Ian Wade

Photographing these toad tadpoles proved really tricky. I wanted to show life above and below the water level on a compact camera. It took a lot of near misses but finally I managed to capture this image showing a spilt-level environment. I head to this location every year to photograph the tadpoles as there are masses of them here wriggling and moving around.

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: A very different photo and an inventive use of a compact camera to tell a story.
