Moments of coincidental humor, stark cruelty, and shocking inter-species intimacies are on full show on this 12 months’s World Nature Photography Awards. The winners of the 2022 competitors embody an enormous array of life throughout six continents, from an elephant’s endearing try at camouflage to a crocodile coated in excessively dry mud spurred by drought. Whereas lots of the pictures spotlight pure occurrences, others highlight the profound impacts people have on the atmosphere to significantly disastrous outcomes, together with Nicolas Remy’s heartbreaking picture that reveals an Australian fur seal sliced open by a ship propellor.

Discover a number of the successful pictures beneath, and discover your complete assortment on the contest’s site.
