Spectacular Winning Photos From The Wildlife Photographer Of The Year 2019

The winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have been announced during a ceremony at London’s Natural History Museum.

Yongqing Bao, who hails from the Chinese province of Qinghai, scooped on Tuesday the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2019 award for The Moment, a striking image that frames the standoff between a Tibetan fox and a marmot, seemingly frozen in life-or-death deliberations.

Fourteen-year-old Cruz Erdmann was named Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2019 with his serene portrait of an iridescent big fin reef squid captured on a night dive in the Lembeh Strait off North Sulawesi, in Indonesia.

The two images were selected from 19 category winners, depicting the incredible diversity of life on Earth – from displays of rarely seen animal behaviour to hidden underwater worlds.

Spectacular Winning Photos From The Wildlife Photographer Of The Year 2019

Overall winner, and behaviour – mammals joint winner: The Moment by Yongqing Bao, China. It was early spring in the Qinghai–Tibet plateau, in China’s Qilian mountains. The marmot was hungry. It was still in its winter coat and not long out of its six-month winter hibernation spent underground with the rest of its colony. It had spotted the fox and sounded the alarm to warn its companions, but the fox had not reacted and was still in the same position, so the marmot had ventured out of its burrow. The fox continued to lie still, then suddenly it rushed forward. (Photo by Bao Yongqing/2019 Wildlife Photographer of the Year) Continue reading »
