Ann Killeen's keen animal instincts have again captured the eye of the judge in a national photographic competition.
The Rutherglen photographer took out the Category B division - The most beautiful image of a bird in the wild in Australia - of the annual Greens competition and exhibition, which encourages people to shoot nature with a camera, not a gun.
Her shot of black-shouldered stilts on Lake Moodemere was described as "delicate, mysterious" and "a beautiful image" by this year's judge, renowned Australian photographer Rex Dupain.
Greens MP David Shoebridge said the competition, now in its sixth year, was part of a campaign to protest against the Sporting Shooters Association's 'Huntfest'.
"We began Animals in the Wild as a positive way to campaign against Huntfest, which we are glad to see has been cancelled after years of community pressure," he said.
"This year we've refocused the competition to include the beauty of our native forests in recognition of their key role as habitat for native animals and to highlight the threats they face from logging and land clearing."
Killeen is well-known for her adventures - along with a few misadventures - in the field as she leaves no stone unturned in the quest for that perfect shot.
Another of her photographs, Black Swamp in Flood, was a finalist in a separate category of the competition.
