  • *An image of a dolphin surfing in the waves has claimed the top prize in the British Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. The dolphin's eye view shot was captured off the coast of Northern Ireland by George Karbus, from County Clare, Ireland, who swam in the surf with the marine mammal to get the winning image and secure the 5,000 prize. Mr Karbus said: "Each time the dolphin got into the wave, I dived underneath, held my breath and waited for the moment when he would swish through a silver barrel close enough to my lens. "Water visibility is always very limited in Ireland and I was very lucky to get a shot like this."
