Winners of European Amateur Photo Competition: Praying Mantis Sunset and More (Slideshow)

Photo: Constant Couteille

Can animals enjoy the sunset? It seems so with the November winners and finalists from Wild Wonders of Europe's amateur photo competition -- but there's nothing amateur about these shots.

Here you'll find stunning silhouettes of both a praying mantis and a butterfly caught against the sun, an owl reflecting on an orange horizon, a dolphin leaping in the soft light of the last minutes of day, and more.
