  • Ahead of the overall winner announcement next month, the Natural History Museum has revealed 15 highly commended images from its iconic Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
  • In its 55th year, the competition is arguably the world’s strongest nature photography contest.
  • Some genuinely incredible images featured in this shortlist of commended entries reveal a newborn hippo being attacked by a large male in a rarely witnessed moment of aggression; an amazing circular mating ritual of swirling bigeye trevally in Egypt’s Red Sea; and a penguin leaping for its life as a leopard seal lunges for its lunch.
