The most beautiful photos taken in the wild world
An image of a young polar bear sleeping on an iceberg by British amateur photographer Nima Sarikhani has won the award for best wildlife photo
"Sarikhani's surprising and moving image allows us to see the beauty and fragility of our planet. His image is a powerful reminder of the connection between an animal and its habitat and serves as a visual representation of the harmful impacts of climate warming and habitat loss," said Natural History Museum director Dr Douglas Gurr.
Here are the other four finalists of the competition:
The Happy Turtle, by Tzahi Finkelstein
Starling Murmuration, by Daniel Dencescu
Shared Parenting, by Mark Boyd
