Co-owned by the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition is now in its 49th year and recently announced the winners. Depicting the candid beauty and often harsh reality of nature, the images serve to raise awareness and appreciation of our surroundings.
If there’s one person I owe my fascination with the natural world to, it’s the wonderful Sir David Attenborough. Watching a natural history documentary narrated by him is completely mesmerizing. His unique dulcet tones hypnotise like an environmental siren. It’s impossible to look away.
If you’re in London this weekend head down to the Natural History Museum to catch their latest showcase, Images of Nature. This new gallery will display some of the museum’s fantastic collection of natural history artworks, including prints and botanical illustrations, like those above by Ferdinand Bauer.
