Reconnect with Nature: Spectacular Winning Photos from The Rediscover Nature Photo Competition 2020

Isn’t nature full of wonders? No matter where we are, we can always appreciate its beauty. Have you ever sat near a quiet lake in a mountain, watched sparrows nesting in your garden or a tiny herb seedling grow on your kitchen windowsill? Taking in nature in all its beautiful shapes and forms can bring us a lot of joy – now possibly more than ever.

A praying mantis, a huddle of butterflies, Galician horses and an alpine sunset are the winners of this year’s European Environment Agency’s “Rediscover Nature” photo competition.
