All the latest winners in the world’s most prestigious wildlife photography competition organised by The Natural History Museum. Chosen from almost 50,000 entries from 92 countries, these amazing images reflect nature’s beauty, diversity and fragility.

Clown anemonefish and anemones enjoy a symbiotic relationship. The parasitic isopods like to hang out in the mouths of anemonefish. Perhaps because of the isopods, Clown anemonefish often open their mouths. These three particular fish were very curious. As I approached, they danced about the camera lens, and there are parasitic isopod in their mouth. It took me six dives, patience and luck to capture the exact moment when all three fish opened their mouths to reveal their guests. Finally, on the last day, on the last dive, I succeeded. Technical specification Canon 5D Mark III, EF100mmMacro, 1/200 sec at F25, ISO320, Sea & Sea Housing, Sea & Sea YS-250 PRO strobes.

  1. Any chance of an address and postcode?
    Where is “Nature in Art”?

    It says “organised by The Natural History Museum”.
    Is this where it is?

    • Hi Sally,
      Thank you for your message. We are based just north of Gloucester on the A38 GL2 9PA.
      The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is organised and run by the Natural History Museum in London but is currently on show at Nature in Art as part of its tour of UK museums and galleries.
