A Florida woman has a squirrel to thank for earning her the top prize at a wildlife photography competition.
Mary McGowan, of Brandon, was named 2018 Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year on Friday at The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards in London. Her amusing photo, captioned "Caught in the Act," features an open-mouthed squirrel with front paws outstretched in a “stop” motion. The image has delighted people around the world.
Next year's competition opens March 1, 2019.
