Here are the fantastic garden photos of the year thanks to The Telegraph, UK.

The RHS Young Photographer of the Year 2012 title has been awarded to Alex Berryman. Alex, aged 15, says: “I was lucky enough to have a pair of robins nesting in my garden and happened to be outside with my camera at the moment they fledged. The birds were unable to fly and were extremely vulnerable. Eventually one hopped up onto a post, and I began to snap away. The bird was constantly calling for its mother and this is what enabled me to get the shot. Sometimes the best wildlife can be found right on our doorsteps. I am extremely pleased to have won the competition, and even more so to have won it with one of my favourite photographs.”
James Arnold, the competition organiser, says: “The judges have been astounded by the extraordinary quality of images which both categories, under-11s and 11–17 year-olds, have produced. It was very difficult to choose a winner, but Alex’s sharp wildlife study of a young robin, beak wide open and with fantastic texture of youthful feathers, stood out as the winner.”
