Nature can be amazing, and so can the frozen moment of time captured by some of the best wildlife photographers in the world.
This year, a woman’s image of a ball of male cactus bees trying to mate with the only female on a Texas ranch was named the best image.
Karine Aigner was announced the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year by the Natural History Museum.
Her photo shows a typically solitary bee species gathering in massive numbers for mating and that information can be used to protect bees from the impacts of humans, museum officials said in the award announcement.
The winner of the Youth Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2022 award was Katanyou Wuttichaitanakorn from Thailand. Wuttichaitanakorn’s photo shows a Bryde’s whale feeding on anchovies and is called “The Beauty of Baleen.”
The two winners came from 19 category winners who were the top photographers among more than 38,500 submissions from 93 countries.
This was the 58th competition.
The winning photographs will be on display at the museum in London starting Friday.
Next year’s competition opens for entries on Monday and closes on Dec. 8 at 11:30 a.m. GMT. For more information, including the rules and fees, visit the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year website.
