Skye Meaker is the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018! Congratulations, @skye_meaker_photography!
Lounging leopard, an intimate portrait of Mathoja from the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana has won Skye Meaker the grand title.
When she was just a cub, Mathoja fell out of a tree and broke her leg, causing her to walk with a limp. Thankfully, she is now a healthy and fully functioning member of the leopard community at the reserve. Skye’s dreamy shot of Mathoja captures her raw beauty and innocence as she dozes on a branch in this peaceful portrait taken in in low light.

Visit our exhibition at the @natural_history_museum in London to see Skye’s image and the full winning collection showcased in our stunning lightboxes. Opening this Friday 19 Oct. Book tickets now via the link in our bio.

I couldn't stop thinking this picture could perfectly fit and explain Edge Day.

So today it is, indeed a very special day, Edge Day for these who don't know.
I'm one year and a few days sober and clean from any kind of drug (if you do not include books and hikes as drugs 🙄). I haven't "decided" to become Straight Edge. It was just something I realized I was when the addition of things I'm against grew up.
It was, nonetheless, one of the best decision of my life.
To stick to it, and fight against such a system, corrupted to the roots and normalizing so many nasty things which hurt people more than it makes good.

No matter the amount, DRUGS (includes alcohol) are nasty for your own good and your path to this tinny freedom you can obtain by being sober.

I used to live with my father who was an alcoholic so I know what kind of damage alcohol can do. I used to live that "Party all Saturdays" kind of person. I could drink until being dead enough to puke or even drink a beer because it "tastes good". But that can not be anymore. Consuming drugs, even on a tinny amount, normalize the thing. A thing which should never be.

Not to mention that you enjoy life a billions times better when being sober and clean with yourself.
Even tho, I'm aware that people suffer from real addiction and for that I wish governments would give these persons the help they need instead of encouraging generations and generations of people to use drugs.

When I think about it today, it kind of feel like flying freely. -「#cosm_ig #vsco #vscocam #vscocamphotos #bird #wildlife #photography #wpy #bw #blackandwhite #monochrome #portrait #seagull #edgeday #xvx #sober #xxx

I am both extremely proud and totally shocked that I just won the overall title Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018!

My image ‘The Golden Couple’ won First Prize in the Animal Portraits category and then suddenly also won the grand title. I did not see that one coming, which explains why I then gave the worst speech in the history of WPY.

The image features two golden snub-nosed monkeys that I photographed in south-west China.

The Qinling golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana qinlingensis) is an Old World monkey in the Colobinae subfamily. It is endemic to a small area in the temperate forests of the Qinling Mountains at elevations of 1,500-3,400 m above sea level.

These beautiful animals are listed as Endangered by the IUCN as only some 3,800 individuals still exist. Most people have never seen these creatures, and awareness is a critical first step towards the successful conservation of any species. This is why I think it is important to show these images to the world.

Their main threat, as often, is habitat-loss. For instance, lichens are the main staple of the monkey’s diet and dead trees have the greatest lichen coverage. Unfortunately, dead trees are harvested, thus reducing the quality of the habitat and availability of food. The monkey is a highly selective feeder, so damage to its habitat seriously impacts the species.

The males have large bodies covered with very long, golden guard hairs on their backs. Females are about half the size of the males, and their golden guard hairs are shorter. •
The golden snub-nosed monkey is found in groups ranging in size from 5-10 individuals to bands of about 600. The males often stay solitary, remaining away from the rest of the group members as they rest, but females or juveniles sometimes join them.

Congratulations to all the other winners, especially my fellow Dutchmen Frans Lanting, Jan van der Greef, and Jasper Doest, and a big thank you to Daniella - my voice controlled mobile light stand.

And thank you to WPY, the judges (I’ll be wiring your money tomorrow), and all the people who have worked so hard to make this such a great event - you’re the best.

Marsel

Et le prix du Wildlife photographer of the year 2018 (l'oscar du meilleur photographe
animalier remis par le Musée d’histoire naturelle de Londres @nhm_wpy et @BBC
Worldwide) est attribué à… @marselvanoosten (Pays-Bas), pour son portrait de
rhinopithèques de Roxellane à l’état sauvage dans les monts Qinling, en Chine 👏 Avec sa crinière léonine et son petit nez, ce singe est classé "en danger" par l’Union internationale pour la conservation de la nature. Le photographe a suivi un groupe de
chercheurs locaux pour pouvoir l’approcher dans son habitat naturel.

🦌 "Il ne suffit pas toujours d'être le plus fort, mais le plus courageux" 🦌

Après un combat court mais intense, les 2 rivaux ne se perdaient pas des yeux.
Étonnement, le moins impressionnant des 2 était en possession des biches.
Tandis que l'autre, plus imposant par sa ramure, regardait son concurrent du coin de l'oeil en poussant quelques raires de vengeance... Belgique - Septembre 2018 ©

« The Ice Monster »
Photographe WildLife de l'année 2017 (catégorie Environnement de la Terre). Un iceberg ne montre que 10% de son sommet au-dessus de la surface. 90% restent invisibles sous l'eau. Photographier la face cachée de l'iceberg a toujours été un fantasme pour moi. En 2015, lors d’une expédition en Antarctique à l’initiative du réalisateur Luc Jacquet (Marche du pingouin), nous avons trouvé les conditions idéales pour que la fantaisie devienne réalité: un iceberg flottant juste au-dessus du fond sableux à -40 m (-130 pi), immobile comme il était piégé dans la banquise. Il mesurait "seulement" 200 m de circonférence mais il était déjà trop grand pour le voir complètement sous l'eau. Cela a pris 3 jours de plongée, d'accepter des orteils gelés et d'utiliser des techniques de photo panoramique pour réussir le défi.
