Hayden’s photo entitled ‘Watering Hole Antics’ was Highly Commended by the judges in the ‘Young Photographer of the Year’ category.
Hayden Wood, student at Denbigh school, is celebrating his success in the prestigious Royal Society of Biology International Photography Competition.
The annual event attracted 1600 entries this year from amateur photographers across the world.
This year's theme was ‘Interconnected’, highlighting the ongoing struggle for survival in nature and the collaborations that take place to ease that struggle every day.
The 12 winners were announced during Biology Week 2021 and included Hayden’s photo which was taken in Kenya and featured a pair of Grevy zebras drinking from a watering hole.
Dr Andrea Frame, Head of School at Denbigh said: ‘We are very proud of Hayden’s success in this international competition. His photograph is stunning. We encourage all our students to enter local and national challenges as we believe competing in this way improves both their knowledge and self-confidence.
"We are delighted that Hayden took up this challenge and that he has been rewarded in this internationally recognised competition.’
