Birds are a secretive and mysterious species, which makes them one of the hardest to photograph.
The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), however, is taking time to appreciate photographers around the world who have mastered the art of capturing the quiet, gentle beauty of birds, and they’ve just announced their winners for 2017.
The Bird Photographer of the Year competition was initiated in 2015, and reportedly received a flood of entries right away.
According to BTO Chief Executive Andy Clements, its aim is “to celebrate the artistry of bird photography and aid conservation by supporting the valuable work carried out by the BTO.”
