We all want to capture that perfect photograph for Instagram—one that results in a plethora of likes and a surplus of endless compliments and praise. But it can be tough to capture the image we see with our naked eye. Thankfully, professional photographers exist.
The Natural History Museum shared a selection of high-end photographs of wildlife for their yearly Wildlife Photographer Of The Year award. The photographs highlight the number of unique animal species spanning across Earth.
The competition hopes to remind viewers that there’s more to the world than skyscrapers, busy sidewalks, and crowded roads. And we think their tactic works.
This year, the collection featured an array of stunning images, from a hippo parading in water with a baby hippo in his mouth to a penguin escaping an open-mouthed leopard seal to a cheetah surrounded by wild pups. It’s safe to say that these photographs are truly remarkable, and a great reminder of Earth’s vast wildlife.
