Gr8at – Wildlife Photographer of the Year

I recently went to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in the very wonderful The Natural History Museum in South Kensington. It was so good I just had to share some of my favourite photographs. If you are anywhere in and around London, I really recommend you go. It runs until the 23 March 2014.

If you hover on each photograph you’ll get its name and who took it.
