Extraordinary photos by extraordinary photographers
Lions resting in trees, a goose taking on the might of an angry fox, long-legged flies performing some kind of bizarre-looking combat dance, and gannets plunging underwater to grab a beakful of sardines and herring these are just a few of the scenes portrayed in photos on show at this year's Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition taking place at the Natural History Museum.


Successful wildlife photographers are few and far between. It takes a certain kind of person to nail a magnificent natural-world shot, someone with endless patience, an eye for a great image and lightning quick reactions. An animal or insect eager to please certainly helps, too.

From 19th October 2012 to 3rd March 2013, London's Natural History Museum invites visitors to come and enjoy 100 of the best wildlife shots taken in the past 12 months by incredible photographers based around the world.

Judges faced the monumental task of choosing just 100 images out of more than 48,000 entries from 98 countries, the photographer of each and every one hoping to win a prize in the annual competition.

The exhibition provides keen photographers, as well as fans of the natural world, a unique chance to marvel at some outstanding work. You never know, it may even inspire you to blow the dust off your camera and enter next year's competition.
