Greece is well known as a holiday destination and for its cultural treasures, but it also has many natural and wildlife riches, including superb wetlands, mountains and forests, and many endemic plants and reptiles. Jari Peltomaki (Finland) produced spectacular images of the Dalmatian pelicans of Lake Kerkini, Christian Ziegler (Germany) focussed on a variety of reptile species, including tortoises, snakes, chameleons and other lizards. Stefano Unterthiner (Italy) documented the endangered Eleanora's falcon in its Dodecanese breeding grounds. Peter Lilja (Sweden) photographed the spectacular Spring flowers of Crete, Greece's largest island. Milan Radisics
(Hungary) travelled to the mountains and forests of the Pindos National Park and to the monasteries of Meteora, perched high on rocks which are actually the eroded remains of an ancient delta.
