The winners of this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have been revealed, and one of them's Canadian: Connor Stefanison, who lives in Burnaby, B.C., won the Eric Hosking Portfolio Award for a selection of his pictures.
Other winners this year come from around the world, with the overall win for Wildlife Photographer of the Year going to Greg du Toit from South Africa for his photo "Essence of Elephants."
This is the 49th year for the competition (check out last year's winners right here), and as usual, the winners provide a varied and fascinating window into this planet of ours and some of the creatures we share it with. All the winning shots will be on display at the Natural History Museum in London, U.K. starting October 18, and the exhibition will visit the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto starting November 23 and the Royal B.C. Museum in Vancouver starting November 29, but you can hit the gallery to see 10 of the winning pics right now.
