Alex's Snapper picture is today featured in the "Metro" with the strapline - "Fearsome: briton Alexander Mustard's Bohan snappers".

It is in an article about the Wildlife photographer of the year competition.

For people outside the Uk - the metro is a free newspaper that is distributed at railway and underground stations in the UK's bigger cities. In London most commuters read it and it has a circulation of over a million.

The snapper picture is really brilliant, like Alex was about to be devoured by them.

we get a Metro in the netherlands as well. When i studied for six months in Aberdeen, i kept wondering what kind of magazine "the big issue" was. Since the people distributing it were so strange, i suspected it to be some kind of ultra right wing magazine. I only later learned it was for the homeless

My picture was also in The Sun too (a British Tabloid) and that has a circulation of 3 million!

It has been amazing how many magazines and newspapers around the world publish the winning images - i have been getting emails from all over the place during the last few days, with people telling me they have seen my shot.

I has been stunning. And then I spoke at the Visions conference at the weekend and the organiser didn't know! He rang me yesterday to say I wish I had told him so I could have talked a bit about my images!
