Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 People’s Choice Award
Hyena highway by Sam Rowley, UK. Spotted hyenas are intelligent and opportunistic animals. On the outskirts of cities such as Harar in Ethiopia, they take advantage of what humans leave behind like bones and rotting meat. In so doing, the hyenas keep disease at bay and the locals tolerate them, even leaving out butcher’s scraps.To capture these hyenas from the family group known as the Highway Clan, Sam set up a remote camera by a roadkill carcass. He photographed the lowest-ranking member of the clan after the dominant members had sauntered off. (Photo by Sam Rowley/Wildlife Photographer of the Year) Continue reading »

Spectacular Winning Photos of The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2022
Here are the winning photos of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2022. The Overall Winner of this year’s competition is Jennifer Hadley, for her classic photograph of a lion cub losing its grip on a tree trunk entitled “Not so cat-like reflexes”. This shot also won the Creatures of the Land category.
Up against 5,000 incredible entries from over 85 countries around the world, Jennifer’s image fought off fierce competition in the closest voting ever! The image was captured in the Serengeti, Tanzania when Jennifer managed to capture that moment a young 3-month-old cub tries to descend from a tree, and it didn’t go so well. “It was probably his first time in a tree” Jennifer said of the image ‘and he decided to just go for it.’ And luckily for us, Jenn.
Overall Winner: “Not so cat-like reflexes” by Jennifer Hadley
“This 3 month old cub and his sibling were in a tree. The other lionesses were in other trees and on the ground. He wanted to get down and walked all over the branches looking for the right spot and finally just went for it. It was probably his first time in a tree and his descent didn’t go so well. He was just fine though after landing on the ground. He got up and ran off with some other cubs.” Continue reading »

New life for the tohorā by Richard Robinson, New Zealand | Winner, oceans: the bigger picture
A hopeful moment for a population of whales that has survived against all odds. Hindered by poor visibility, Robinson used a polecam to photograph the whales gradually moving towards his boat. Pushing his camera to its limits, he was relieved to find the image pin-sharp and the moment of copulation crystallised in time. Known by the Māori as tohorā, the New Zealand population was hunted to near extinction in the 1800s, so every new calf offers new hope.

Underwater wonderland, by Tiina Törmänen, Finland
Törmänen was thrilled to meet a school of inquisitive European perch on her annual snorkel in Honkalampi lake. In the previous three years she had found only dead fish. She framed the fish flying through clouds of pink-tinged algae. Although it created a beautiful scene, excessive algal growth, a result of the changing climate and warming waters, can cause problems for aquatic wildlife as it uses up oxygen and blocks out sunlight.

Monochrome Gold Award Winner: “Whale Shark and Tourists” by Csaba Tökölyi, Hungary
“The image shows fishermen feeding Whale Sharks near Oslob in the Philippines, while a group of snorkelling divers wonder at the spectacle. The spot is remarkably popular, attracting thousands of visitors, however, the situation is by no means ideal. Although the animals are no longer slaughtered as before, the attraction of continuous food supply changes their migratory path and in some cases the animals spend months rather than weeks here before continuing to their breeding grounds. Although touching the animals is strictly prohibited (threat of fine and imprisonment) it happens from time to time.” Continue reading »

Photographer Makes Incredible Macro Shots Of Insects And Wildlife Creatures
According to Niki Colemont, a Belgium-based photographer: “I started with macro 5 years ago. I was inspired because it is a very underrated subject in photography and incredibly difficult to do. I have sold my macro equipment because I can’t combine it anymore with my wildlife photography. Never have I taken a course—making mistakes and trying again over and over is the best way to learn things. I’m happy to say now that I won a prize with one of these pictures. I hope you have fun looking at these pictures as I had fun making them. Peace.” Continue reading »
