Nature. It's big. And all around us. In our faces on a daily basis. But not this kind of nature, the kind that you have to traipse through the jungle, or trek up mountains to see. The primal stuff, the stuff that makes the animal kingdom so... Animal. This is the sort of nature photography you'll see at the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at The Natural History Museum.

As you can probably tell from the name this is a competition as well as an exhibition, run by the BBC Wildlife Magazine in conjunction with the NHM. The images you'll see here are the best hundred or so selected from the tens of thousands that are selected. Amateurs and young and aspiring photographers are welcome to submit their work, and occasionally they capture something very special, but this is a big international competition, now in its 47th year, and wins here mean a lot to professionals as well. To keep it fair they do have categories for younger eagle-eyed-photographers, and for less experienced ones, so if you're interested check out the info about the 2012 competition while you're there. This really is the place to see the most magical moments in nature captured and larger than life.

The competition is judged in October, and the winners are announced on the 20th, after which the wining and shortlisted shots are displayed for the public to appreciate from the 21st.

If you want to start early you can view some of the images online and vote for the visitor's choice.
