Penguins, ice and light... the beauty of nature captured on camera by the world's greatest wildlife photographers Stare at the beautiful sight of African elephants at twilight, and witness the split second before a grizzly bear shuts his jaws on a sockeye salmon. Or study a western lowland gorilla walk through a cloud of butterflies she has disturbed, and see a greater bulldog bat's reflection as it catches a fish.
Stunning wildlife photographs capture nature at its best Puffins at sunset and baby elephants learning how to use their trunks: Everyone believes they are a budding photographer, but these stunning images of nature at its finest show why we should leave it to the professionals. Taken by some of the world's top wildlife experts, they show the skill that is needed to take such intimate pictures of nature. The images have been released as part of the UK’s largest wildlife photography show, WildPhotos 2013.
