The ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ competition held with the sponsorship of BBC Worldwide and Natural History Museum receives entries from all over the world. This is the 50th year. We had a sneak-peak into the award winning photographs and, we tell you, they were breathtakingly beautiful. They left us gaping at the skill and perfect timings of the photographers. The images celebrate the beauty and versatility of wild life on planet earth. They photos tell stories of the lands which most of us might never get to visit.
