The winner of the 45th edition of the best nature and animal photos competition, under the auspices of prestigious BBC Wildlife Magazine and London’s Natural History Museum, was designated a snapshot planned and organized by the author for many years.
The winning photo was chosen from a total of over 43 000 images sent by nature lovers around the world.
“I wanted to get a snapshot where people can see a wolf in full hunt, but without the bloody moments. I didn’t want a raw image, which would get people to hate the wolves”, said the winner of this year’s edition, Spaniard Jose Luis Rodriguez.
To get the exceptional snapshot, he studied for many years the habits and routes of a pack of wolves. The secret of the photo resides in the hand built hatch operated by an infrared beam, which automatically activated the camera when the animal jumped over it.
To succeed the desired photo, Jose Luis Rodriguez gave up his initial device, a Nikon D2X, to use a Hasselblad camera. The entire final photographic equipment consisted, in fact, in a medium-format film camera Hasselblad 503CW, with a fix 80 mm canon.

They chose ”Miss Plastic” from a number of ladies helped by the doctor’s scalpel to be perfect. They were allowed to walk on the podium, only if they have been through at least one plastic surgery.
In the training camp the women have spent dozens of hours in the gym. They then passed on to massages and swimming pool.Together with the specialists who have reshaped their noses, lips, breasts and buttocks have entered the competition for the most beautiful…plastic surgery.

Among these are ladies approaching 40 years and had undergone a recovery operation of the nose, liposuction or a facelift. However, the jury took into account not only the appearance of competitors, but also their health records, to analyze the success of surgical procedure.
The winner, a young hostess, has received an apartment in Budapest, and her colleagues from the podium, one vehicle plus diamond jewelry worth $ 10,000.

Small, large, natural and artificial! Boobs parade in Auckland, New Zealand.
More than 80,000 people were estimated to have visited Queen St for this year’s Boobs on Bikes parade.
One of the biggest attraction at this year’s parade was Chelsea Charms, who boasts one of the world’s largest pair of breasts. As usual there have been complaints about the event, this time from Auckland’s fashion industry who were furious that the parade clashed with Air New Zealand Fashion Week.
The organiser, Steve Crow uses the parade to promote the annual Erotica Lifestyles Expo and usually faces some stiff opposition to the event from conservatives and feminists. However unlike previous years there was no official protest to get the parade cancelled.
