Like This, Dad? or so, dad?

“The pandemic has forced us to slow down and take inspiration from nature, reconnect with it and remember its beauty,” says South Australian Museum Director Brian Oldman. “As things return to normal and the world opens, these images are the perfect inspiration to continue deepening our relationship with the natural world and reflect on our impact.”

The photographs to which Oldman refers are those of the prestigious Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest, which, since its inception in 2004, has been compiling a fantastic selection of the best images of fauna, flora or landscapes of the regions of Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica and New Guinea.

Due to the growth of the competition over two decades, this year the contest introduces three new categories focused on astrophotography, animals in the wild and urban animals, which join the existing ones, offering an impressive selection of finalists. that we show you in this photo gallery.
