RUN by the Natural History Museum in London, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards select the best animal kingdom moments caught on camera each year.
And of this year’s winners, three of the acclaimed artists have come from Spain.
Winner of the Behaviour: Birds category, Jose Luis Ruiz Jimenez spent hours in chest-high water in Brozas, Extremadura, waiting to get a shot of this great crested grebe family.
Jaime Culebras, winner of the Behaviour: Amphibians and Reptiles category, was similarly determined and walked for hours in Ecuador’s Andes to capture the first ever image of a Manduriacu glass frog feeding.
And the future looks bright for the next generation of Spanish photographers as Andres Luis Dominguez Blanco won the 10 years and under category with his shot of this European stonechat bird in Andalucia.
Kate Middleton, patron of the National History Museum, presented the highest accolade, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, at the virtual online awards ceremony last week.
