We’re looking forward to the next edition of  #Dynasties, which explores the world of Emperor penguin colonies in Antarctica.🐧 They face the challenge of surviving the cruellest winters on earth, just like these little chicks in this unforgettable shot by  #WPYalumni Gunther Riehle. Gunther arrived at the sea-ice in Antarctica in sunshine, but by the evening a relentless storm had picked up - and then came snow. He concentrated on taking shots of the chicks huddled together to shield themselves, one of the ways they deal with the harsh conditions of their environment. #WPY  #WildlifePhotographerOfTheYear  #Nature  #NaturePhotography  #Penguins  #EmperorPenguins  #EmperorPenguinColony  #Antarctica  #PenguinChicks  #NaturePhotos  #Photographer  #Antarctica  #PenguinsOfInstagram  #Photography  #WildlifePhotography  #Animals  #PhotoOfTheDay  #penguinchicks  #babyanimals  #PhotographyCompetition  #NaturalHistoryMuseum

Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a complete sell-out this weekend. Tickets get snapped up fast - we recommend being as speedy as this lightning-quick jaguar, photographed catching a yacaré caiman in  @christianbrunskill's dramatic image, The Bigger Bite! Click the bio link or head to www.nhm.ac.uk/wpy to book in advance and guarantee entry. The jaguar had come across the yacaré caiman by chance – accidentally stepping on the reptile after a failed charge at a capybara. Without hesitation the jaguar pounced, overcoming its monstrously large prey in minutes. The yacaré caiman and jaguar are both top predators in the Pantanal Wetlands, and struggles like this are not unusual. Though excellent swimmers, jaguars tend to stalk or ambush their prey on the ground, subduing them with their formidable bite. After they have delivered their final blow, they will often drag carcasses to shelter to enjoy their meal in peace. @nhm_wpy  #WPY54  #WildlifePhotographerOfTheYear #WPY  #NaturePhotography  #Wildlife  #Nature  #WildlifePhotography  #Photography  #Exhibition  #PhotoOfTheDay  #Instagood  #Instanature  #NaturalHistoryMuseum  #Animals  #AnimalPortraits  #WildAnimals  #Conservation  #Photographer  #PhotographyCompetition  #Photography  #Exhibition  #LondonMuseum  #PhotographyExhibition  #PhotoExhibition  #Jaguar  #YacaréCaiman  #Yacaré  #Yacare  #Caiman  #YacareCaiman  #BigCat  #ChrisBrunskill

Puppies like to play. In this macabre yet playful image by  @nicholasdyerphotography, a pair of African wild dog pups play game of tag with the head of a chacma baboon – the remains of their breakfast. Nick’s image is Highly Commended in  #WPY54. The endangered African wild dog (aka the painted hunting dog) is best known for hunting antelopes, such as impalas and kudus. But over the past five years, in Mana Pools National Park, northern Zimbabwe, Nick has witnessed three different packs regularly killing and eating baboons – highly unusual, not least because baboons are capable of inflicting severe wounds. There are only 6,500 painted dogs left in the world, and Nick is passionate about raising awareness for these charismatic animals. Hear more from Nick and see additional photographs of the dogs via our latest article at www.nhm.ac.uk/discover. Image: Ahead in the game by Nicholas Dyer, UK.

Two 60 foot long fin whales hung out around our boat yesterday aboard  @newportcoastaladventure These behemoths are the second largest animals on the planet, right behind the blue whale. Their large size and unique streamline bodies make them extremely fast when they want to be. However these two chose to “mug” our boat and hang out with us for about 30 minutes. Such an amazing experience behind around these gentle giants!

Did you know humpbacks can eat up to 5,000 pounds of food in a day!? Here in Newport these giants feed almost exclusively on large schools of anchovies. This humpback was seen using a technique called lunge-feeding. When a bait ball of anchovies is corralled to the surface by dolphins or sea lions, humpbacks feed from beneath the bait ball and explode out of the water with mouths wide open. Such an amazing behavior to witness! Have you ever seen a humpback lunge-feed?

Happy that I finally managed to put together a decent portfolio that tells the story of some of the world’s biggest bird colonies, such as the James’s flamingo colony that inhabits the highest plateau outside the Tibetan Plateau, Pamir mountain or “the roof of the world”, namely the Bolivian Altiplano in the Andes Cordillera. • • The colony is believed to be 300K strong and includes many endemic species that have adapted to the harsh and unforgiving nature of the Eduardo Avaroa National Reserve, inside the Andes Cordillera at some 4500m amsl. • • Hopefully it will have something to say at the  @nationalhistorymuseum Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest, under the storytelling category!  @nhm_wpy • •  #nationalhistorymuseum  #wildlife  #wildlifephotographeroftheyear  #natgeo  #bolivia  #altiplano  #bolivianaltiplano  #jamesflamingo  #flamingo  #andes  #storytelling  #photojournalism #nhm  #ngtuk  #ngtuknomad  #natgeoyourshot  #natgeowild  #wildlifeconservation  #teamcanon  #discoverbolivia  #eduardoavaroa  #nationalreserve  #southamerica  #latinamerica

A charming image by  @connorstefanison to continue our  #WPY_Winter theme. ❄️ In this shot, a ptarmigan becomes a hidden gem in a beautiful snow scene. Three black dots – one beak, two eyes – were what Connor was looking for: a ptarmigan in full winter plumage. At 3,000 metres in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada, he and his friend, kitted out in mountain gear and snowshoes, finally spotted them. Connor composed his shot, anticipating that the bird would carry on walking into the frame.
