Idén is bejutott két magyar a Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 döntőjébe. Kilencvenöt országból több mint 50 ezer kép érkezett a pályázatra, a nagydíjat az amerikai Tim Laman nyerte ”Entwined lives„ fotójával.
Korábban a témában:

Tim három napot várt a fotó elkészültéig a borneói őserdőben, hogy a 30 méter magasan elhelyezett kamerájával megörökítse a kihalás szélén álló orangutánt. A dél-kelet ázsiai dzsungelben évről évre csökken a vadonban élő orangutánok élettere, a fakitermelés és a folyamatosan növekvő mezőgazdasági területek kialakítása miatt, de számottevő fenyegetés éri őket az orvvadászok miatt is.

After a few decades, the Danube mayfly (Ephoron virgo) have returned to the river Danube, probably due to the increasing water quality. The fantastic mass swarming of these mayflies is one of the most exciting phenomenon for me. My image was taken in a dark, near-natural bank of Rába river (a tributary of the Danube) with long exposure, flash and flashlight.  Unfortunately, the lamp-lit bridges have negative influence to them, because they are attracted to the lamps, become exhausted, lay their eggs to the asphalt roads of the bridge and perish immediately. The team of the Danube Research Institute in cooperation with the Environmental Optics Laboratory plan to solve this biooptical and environmental problem. This image is very precious to me as I can draw the attention to these spectacular water insects and their complex ecological light trap, which endanger their survival.

The fantastic mass swarming of these mayflies is one of the most exciting phenomenon for me. My image was taken in a dark bank of Danube with long exposure and flashlight inTahitótfalu, Hungary. At the and of the swarming, the females lay their eggs to the water surface.

Twinspot snapper (Lutjanus bohar) engaged in a mass spawning aggregation early in the morning. This event was photographed in Palau, where mass spawning of this species takes place several days each month, with the timing determined by moon phase and tides. Thousands of fish gather. Predators such as bull sharks and oceanic blacktip sharks occasionally come in to prey on the fish. Other species of reef fish dine on the gametes. Photographed with Canon EOS 5DIII, EF15mm f2.8 lens, f9, 1/200, ISO 640, natural light. Editing note: Minor backscatter removal and dodging/ burning, crop to 16 x 9 aspect. Full file size: 5653 x 3180 pixels

) Description- What’s urban today wasn’t so yesterday. The frame of civilization was put on a green patch of forest, which forms an unofficial buffer zone for Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai.  Aarey Milk Colony is 12 sq km of cowsheds and human settlements today with its green heart still in place. While humans came, the big cats developed what humans would call manners. They operate in time slots, which make them virtually ghosts to their (not-so-new) neighbours. While most humans are unaware of the original citizens of this land, quite a few do. Thankfully those who do, have learnt to quietly appreciate the cultivated intelligence of these big cats, which has enabled them to co-exist. The Warli tribal to whom this house belongs is one of them. A Warli painting inside his house depicts a leopard demonstrating the quiet comfort zone, which allows him, and many tribals like him to coexist with the big cats in spite of their occasional too-close-to comfort encounters. It took the sole witness of camera trap right in his backyard and patience of 4 months to capture this unique man-leopard co-existence which perhaps exists no where else in the world!

ii) Image processing involves burning, dodging at local level and exposure adjustments. 

Equipment used- Nikon D7000 camera, 18-105mm Nikkor lens,  Nikon flashes, Trailmaster infra red triggers, home made camera and flash housing. 

Subject- Leopard, Panthera pardus
IUCN Status – Near Threatened
