Incredible Photos Of The 2016 British Wildlife Pictures Awards


The results are in! The winner of the 2016 British Wildlife Pics Awards is George Stoyle. George found his winning subject off the Island of Hirta in Scotland. The wildlife pic he captured are nothing short of magical.

“I was working for Scottish Natural Heritage on a project to assess the current biological status of major sea caves around some of the UK’s most remote islands,” George said. “At the end of one of the dives I was swimming back to the boat when I came face to ‘face’ with the largest jellyfish I’d ever encountered.” Photography and wildlife photography in particular is all about timing. You never know when you’re going to get the perfect shot.  “As I approached cautiously I noticed a number of juvenile fish had taken refuge inside the stinging tentacles.”

These are some of the incredible photos George and other talented photographers took. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section.
