The 12 finalists of the contest "best animal photographer of the year" were unveiled, and their pictures are really beautiful

Animal photography is a delicate, challenging and frustrating art, because each time you capture the right moment, to find yourself in the right place at the right time. More often than not, this requires hours and hours of waiting in advance, during which the photographer is on the lookout. Like a hunter, he must stand motionless in the water, in the snow, or in the forest, in order to be able to photograph the animal in its natural habitat. It takes patience, a good dose of luck, and above all, talent!
In a previous series of photographs from an ornithological photographic contest  organized by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), you had already presented splendid portraits of birds. This time, there is a selection of animal photographs in the competition "Wildlife Photographer Of The Year" organized by the Natural History Museum of London s.
The 12 finalists, selected from more than 50,000 participants from 92 different countries, will each receive an airline ticket to London to attend the award ceremony.
