On the nest, great northern divers can be nervous, so Connor waded into the lake closer every day, increasing this female’s trust. On one visit she even laid a second egg. ‘I spent a few days waiting for the right light and earning more trust.’
Connor wanted to capture the intimacy of the nest in the lake setting, so used a wide-angle, with his camera (camouflaged) on remote. ‘It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the best I’ve ever had.’

In honour of #SharkAwarenessDay, we're revisiting this powerful image by #WPYalumni Brian Skerry. Brian is a photojournalist specialising in marine wildlife and underwater environments.
Each year more than 100 million sharks are killed worldwide, threatening the survival of most species. The slaughter is in part driven by the high price paid for shark fins on the Asian market. Brian went to Baja California, Mexico, specifically to document the killing. This female mako shark was pregnant with nearly full-term pups. 'I was concentrating on composing the frame to show the finning of this beautiful fish, with the fisherman sharpening his knife in the background,' says Brian. 'It was only afterwards that I noticed the poignant "tear of blood".' Image: Tears of blood by @brianskerry USA.
Highly commended 2010, One Earth Award.

Harvest time at Owen’s grandparents’ farm draws in the birds of prey to feed on the fleeing small mammals, and it also attracts Owen, with his camera at the ready. ‘Seeing this red kite with an aeroplane in the distance was a moment I couldn’t miss,’ says Owen.

The shot is symbolic for him for two reasons. It was taken at the centre of the Bedfordshire site chosen for London’s third airport back in the late 1960s. ‘Opposition to the planned airport stopped it going ahead, which is why I can photograph the wildlife on the farm today.’ At the same time, British red kites also faced extinction following centuries of persecution. But following reintroductions, numbers have increased dramatically, spreading east from the Chilterns.
Are you a young photographer with an eye for an unusual picture? The next competition opens for entries on 22 October and we’d love to see your work! Keep an eye on our feeds for tips and competition updates.

Ready to make an impression? The 2019 competition opens on 22 October 2018 and we want to see the natural world through your lens. Now is the time to start thinking about the images you want to submit, and the wild creatures and places you want to share with the world.

#WPYalumni Jordi is fascinated by crocodiles, 'with their bizarre beauty' and the fact that they have outlived the dinosaurs. He was diving at Jardines de la Reina, an archipelago off southern Cuba, when he encountered this juvenile.
