Our Wondrous World, Still and All
For all our crimes against the planet, it remains a place of astonishing bounty and beauty. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" competition, co-sponsored by London’s Natural History Museum and the BBC, the judges have opened up the voting to the public in a new “People’s Choice Award” category, featuring 50 photos chosen from 41,000 contenders. It's already been a tough week. Enjoy.
