This photo was made in my hometown, called Thiersee, a small village in the heart of the Alps (Tyrol, Austria). I had to wait till the lake thiersee, which is frozen all the wintertime, begins to melt in spring.Just for a few days you can see these natural patterns in the melting ice. But not without a drone. So I told my daughter to make a boat trip with her red kayak. Till now nobody in my hometown tell me how the patterns grow. (Because nobody know that they exist).

This image was captured in lower Ice Lake Basin outside of Silverton, CO. The rain had come and gone a number of times throughout the trip. This was the scene that unfolded on the last evening. it was such a site to behold and a great way to end the trip.

Like mostseals the Australian Fur Seals are very inquisitive and playful. I was lucky to spend a couple of hours playing with this small colony of female seals until the bull male got tired of the lack of attention and made it clear I wasn’t welcome anymore.

Dear future generation, I hope we will still be able to see the Arctic wildlife as we do now. It is threatened as the environment is changing. I was able to witness many scenes of wildlife and I can guarantee you this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Here the polar bear might be interpreted as holding backthe sea ice melting. Incredible and unique shot 6 meters above a polar bear in Nunavut, Baffin area during wildlife reportage in Nunavut and Greenland during summer 2017. (Photo and caption by Florian Ledoux/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


Every summer, a thousands of belugas come back in the shallow whater of Nunavut. They spend summer in estuaries, scratching their skins on the bottom. We can see them really close to the shore,in a turquoise water that make you feel you are not in the arctic. The photo was taken during a wildlife reportage in Nunavut and Greenland during summer 2017. (Photo and caption by Florian Ledoux/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


The image was taken from Hallstat Village in Austria right after sunrise. I had to walk some distance to reach this village view point. It was worth every step that I took as the scene turned out to be magical with the fog movement. Luckily the fog did not cover up the mountains.

Great White Shark at Guadalupe Island, Mexico. (Photo and caption by Alejandro Cupi/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


We found them early one morning feasting on a new kill of a springbok. It was an intense sight to watch them feed -our close proximity to them gave usan opportunity to observe their relationship with one another. It was fascinating to watch the brothers intermittently embrace each other and lick the blood off each other’s faces while the mother kept guard. This photograph captures the harshness of the wild and yet softens us to witness the strong bond between the brothers.

Kalsoy island and Kallur lighthouse in sunset light, Faroe Islands. (Photo and caption by Wojciech Kruczyński/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


Bongoyo Island, located just off the coast of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, is a beautiful island that’s very common for people to visit for a day trip. Not only is it a wonderful, luxurious resort-feeling island featuring relaxing beach-side food and drink service, but it also harbors adventure and exploration. You can explore the “jungle-like” main part of the island and check out other beaches and discover the elusive “shark Lagoon.” (Photo and caption by Nick Johanson/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


Spain has many impressive landscapes and fascinating destinations, but one of the most amazing natural resorts are the salty pink lakes in Torrevieja. In this beautiful coastal resort you can find two beautiful salt lakes: a blue-green one called La Mata lagoon and the other, of an impressive pink colour, known as Torrevieja lagoon; both connected to the sea by canals. (Photo and caption by Wellington Rodrigues/National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest)


The young Whale Shark was swimming in the Gulf of Thailand at a popular dive site called Sail Rock near the island of Koh Pha Ngan. The brief encounter was was captured whilst diving the remote reef which the graceful giant was using as cleaning station, a sort of car wash for big fish.

実にハイレベル!2匹の虫がフンを食べている場面をハネに宿した蛾(※昆虫出演中)

no title


 天敵の目を欺くため、あるいは獲物を呼び寄せるため、ある特定のモノに似せた外見を持つ昆虫は数多く存在する。獲得して擬態するまったくの別物になりすます植物や昆虫はよく見かける。

 そのカモフラージュの巧みさに、我々人間は驚かされるものばかりなのだが、東南アジア原産のモンウスギヌカギバ(Macrocilix maia)の模倣っぷりがかなりすごいと海外で話題となっていた。

 この蛾のハネ(翅)には、ある場面全体が映し出されている。これは、ある意味劇場型。まったく新しいレベルの模倣といえよう。
