Wildlife Photographer of the YearSome photographers wait for weeks in order to catch that one great action shot, some set up elaborate timing mechanisms. Others have simply seen an opportunity, grabbed a camera and produced a unique picture of the natural world. The annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum consistently shows fresh perspectives on animals, insects, plants and landscapes - capturing brilliantly across a number of categories the most colourful and heart-warming collection of images on display in the capital. This year the competition celebrates its 50th anniversary and has introduced a new 'People's Choice Award' which invites the public to vote for their favourite from a selection of 50 images. This can be done through the Natural History Museum website and each person can only vote once. The overall winner and the people's choice winner will be announced in October 2014 and the images, alongside other commendable entries, will be on display at the Natural History Museum exhibition.
