What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Nature Photographer of the Year 2020

Today, we’re looking at the amazing Nature Photographer of the Year 2020 contest organized by the German Society for Nature Photography. I don’t know about you, but I need all the nature I can get right now, and these photos are truly remarkable.

Because the virus and quarantine hit before the Society’s annual general meeting, the voting was instead conducted online. The entries were divided into seven categories: birds, mammals, other animals, plants and fungi, landscapes, nature’s studio, and water.

The Society received 5,046 photos, and 10 images were selected in each of the categories. The first image below by Peter Lindel was selected as the overall winner, but it had a lot of competition.

You can see the winners on the German Society for Nature Photography website and on Instagram and Facebook.

  3. As I attempt to if Donna posts a link and she does most of the time, I follow that link. Today was no exception and I fell in love with the Racoons. Also, thanks to Google was able to translate the German to English. I enjoyed that. Hal

  5. Each of these images is magical and now I am going to lose some span of time visiting the website and looking at all the others.

  6. My error. Sorry, I do make mistakes. Here is what my answer should have been: Rabbits and hares are different from the moment they are born. … Hares tend to be larger than rabbits, with longer hind legs and longer ears with black markings. While rabbits’ fur stays the same color year-round, hares change color from brown or gray in the summer to white in the winter. So it is hare and not a rabbit. The picture is a hare in the winter time. Hal
