Photography

This breathtaking collection of nature photography reveals rare creatures, transports us to distant landscapes, and captures fleeting moments of drama and beauty in the natural world. From a rare glimpse of the elusive Pampas cat to a heart-pounding shot of the Wildebeest Migration, each of the 100- plus images tells a story about the diversity and grandeur of life on our planet. These photographs are all winners of the BigPicture Natural World Photography Competition, founded in 2014 by the California Academy of Sciences to recognise photographers who use their artistic mastery to teach and inspire. With essays by leading lights in conservation and photography and captions explaining the natural phenomena and technology behind each shot, this book celebrates the beautiful intersection of art and science.
