Wildlife Awards go on tour

The Natural History Museum in London has on show the stunning images from this year's Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Now this great collection is travelling internationally. There are many categories for wildlife cameramen including some for young entrants. Here are two winners from many. To see more click on the link or, if you're passing by, visit the Museum.

This is Snatch and Grab by Arto Juvonen from Finland. Here a Goshawk pounces on a gull for lunch. Arto says, "Every time I look at the image, I can hear the gull screaming."

Titled, The Mobster, by Jim Nelger from the USA. Jim has photographed birds on his home patch in Florida for many years. He was focusing on a Great Horned Owl returning home when a Fish Crow appeared, jabbing the owl with its feet. The owl kept its dignity and shrugged off the interloper, continuing on its way.
