Vidyun R. Hebbar Wildlife Photographer Of The Year

Every year since 1965 the London Natural History Museum runs a wildlife photography contest. And as you already know, here in Rock&Pop We are fans of scientific and animal photography competitions, so it is vital for us to share the winners of this event.

The best of the best

For this edition, more than 50,000 photographs were received from 95 countries, and the winner of the year is from the underwater biologist and photographer Laurent Ballesta. His photo “Creation” shows several grouper fish swimming through the newly released sperm and egg mixture. I mean, yeah, water sex. The capture was made in Fakarava, on the French Polynesia and also won the award in the category “Underwater”.

We remind you that you can also review the finalists of the Ocean Photography Awards 2021, of the Small World de Nikon, and of Comedy Wildlife Awards 2021.
