    The Struggle

    We followed these 5 cheetahs for a couple of days until they singled out a full grown Willdebeast from a large herd. After a brief 15 second chase they then struggled for 15 minutes before finally bringing down the herbivore. Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Masai Mara, Kenya

    Father Calling

    This night frog, endemic to the Western Ghats of India, exhibits a unique breeding behaviour. The males call for females, the females come and lay the eggs, then the males fertilise them. In this image, the male has successfully fertilised a clutch of eggs from a female. He is calling out for other females to lay eggs.

Congratulations to the featured photographers and a big thank you to all who entered! Thank you also to the generous support of our contest sponsors:
