We recently learned what won the 2011 National Geographic Photo Contest – and now we’ve got another stunner courtesy of the 2011 GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest.

The above shot, titled “Profit and Loss” features a cuckoo caught in the act stealing a reed warbler’s egg from its nest. The birds are notorious for replacing the eggs of other species with one of their own, often being nearly identical in appearance.

The moment was captured by Oldrich Mikulica from the Czech Republic and won the grand prize of $2,000.

Some additional winners are below. You can view the full gallery here.

“Lion Cubs – Lionceaux complices” | Grégoire Bouguereau – France

 “Tasmanian Paradise – Tasmanisches Paradies” | Verena Popp-Hackner – Austria

 “Two Little Men – Dos hombrecillos” | Ana Retamero Olmos – Spain
