The British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016: The Winners
The winners of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 have been announced!
David Nussbaum, Chief Executive, WWF-UK comments; “WWF-UK are delighted to sponsor the Coast and Marine category in the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016, celebrating the diversity, splendour and drama of UK wildlife. This year’s winning image [of a lion’s mane jellyfish] is a striking example of the natural beauty and variety of life we have within and around our shores, as well as the skill and artistry of our wildlife photographers. The photo exquisitely captures the voluptuous frills and folds, and kaleidoscope colours of this giant jellyfish. But it’s the jelly’s Piscean ‘stowaways’ that make this picture, a shoal of shimmering, glistening juvenile fish finding safe harbour amongst the tangle of tentacles.”
