A Look At The Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Finalists

(Feature image courtesy of Wildlife Photographer of the Year on Facebook.)

The natural world is full of beauty and wonder, and we need to be reminded every so often of how fortunate we are to live in a time where it can be so easily captured in photographs. The images that can be captured can make us feel big or small, or happy or sad. Some can even scare us and force us to be reflective on the state of our world.

All this and more is present in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which is truly stunning. Ranging from the breathtaking to the bizarre, the contest attracted submissions from both amateurs and professionals in 96 countries. While the winners have already been announced, this is a look at the top ten finalists whose work will be on display with the rest of the 100 finalist photographs as they tour the world.
