The British Ecological Society has announced the winners of its annual photo competition, and it features fantastic photos of fearsome predators pouncing on prey, a freakishly rare ocelot, and a crafty chameleon doing what a chameleon does best.
This year’s competition was called “Capturing Ecology,” and it features photos primarily taken by international ecologists and students. In addition to capturing beautiful images, the photographers had to demonstrate interactions between different species in their natural environments—a not-so-easy task. The competition featured several different categories, each with an overall winner and a student winner. Here are some of our favorites.
