Wildlife photographer of the year winner the big buzz by Karine Aigner

The winners of the Natural History Museum’s prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition are on display at the Natural History Museum in London.


Karine Aigner’s remarkable image (above) of a buzzing ball of cactus bees spinning over the hot sand on a Texas ranch won the Grand Title award.

‘Wings-whirring, incoming males home in on the ball of buzzing bees that is rolling straight into the picture. The sense of movement and intensity is shown at bee-level magnification and transforms what are little cactus bees into big competitors for a single female,’ said chair of the jury, Rosamund Kidman Cox.
