An outstanding compilation of nature photography, featuring the winners of the annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition The more than 48,000 entries for the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 competition come from 98 different countries, and this stunning, truly international collection features all of the winning and commended photographs. Taken by the world's top professional and amateur photographers, the images are not only technically flawless, but also creative, innovative, and surprising. The album features astonishing and sometimes humorous wildlife photography, and each photograph is accompanied by an extended caption that explains where and how it was taken. There are breathtaking bird shots, images of underwater worlds, arresting animal portraits, and photographs revealing the beauty of plant life and urban wildlife—a tribute to the splendor, drama, and variety of life on Earth.
