Wildlife Awards 2013

The winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 have been announced and the BBC has posted a slide show (CLICK). This most unusual photo Mother's Little Headful won 14-year-old Udayan Rao Pawar from India the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 award. It shows hatchling gharial crocodiles crowding on the mother's head for protection. Udayan camped overnight on the bank of the Chambal River in Madhya Pradesh, India, to get this early morning shot of a rare species. Gharials (freshwater crocodiles) are under threat, due to illegal sand mining and fishing. There are only around 200 left in the wild. The exhibition of 100 top photos opens at the Natural History Museum in London on 18 October and runs until 23 March 2014, admission £10.90 adults or £5.45 silver surfers, excluding donations. Half price! Sadly, entry to this must-see show for kids (4-16 years) is £5.40 (CLICK).
