‘Mister Whiskers’ by Valter Bernardeschi.

Mister Whiskers by Valter Bernardeschi, Italy.
One of the highly commended images from the 2018 Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
Valter came across the walruses feeding just off an island in the Norwegian archipelago off Svalbard.
Immediately, a few curious walruses – mainly youngsters – began swimming towards him.
Keeping at pole’s length, he was able to take this intimate portrait of the distinctive whiskered faces of a youngster and its watchful mother.
