The winners of the annual World Nature Photography Awards (WNPA) for 2021 have been revealed.
That’s pictures really breathtaking. Also, Amos Nachoum of the United States won the top place and a $1,000 cash prize. And his photograph is of a leopard seal preparing to catch a helpless Gentoo penguin.
Nachoum waited patiently for on the lonely island of Plano, off the coast of Antarctica Peninsula, for the right moment at low tide when the seals stealthily enter a lagoon and look for their prey.
The event organizers feel that photography can highlight the magnificence and awe of the natural environment, encouraging us to take action now to ensure a brighter tomorrow for everyone, as humanity’s relationship with Earth gradually turns to one of protection rather than take. When you scroll through the judges’ favorites, it’s impossible to disagree.
