Photographer Sergey Gorshkov’s picture wins the Wildlife Photographer of the Year grand title with an ethereal image of a Siberian tiger scent-marking a gnarled fir tree in the Russian Far East.
The picture, titled The Embrace, shows the intimate moment an endangered Siberian tiger hugs an ancient Manchurian fir tree to mark it with her scent. It took Russian photographer Sergey Gorshkov over 11 months to capture using motion sensor cameras. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge announced the image as the grand title winner in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which received over 49,000 entries.
Winner – Animals in their Environment and Garand Title Winner: The embrace by Sergey Gorshkov, Russia Winner 2020

But it was not until November that he achieved the picture he had planned for, of a magnificent tigress in her Siberian forest environment.
