Photos showcase international and Israeli wildlife
Worldwide competition winners are coupled with local entries in a powerful exhibit.
Started by the Natural History Museum in London and the BBC Worldwide, the world-renowned nature photography contest Wildlife Photographer of the Year is nearing its 50th anniversary. Out of thousands of 2013 entries, the judges of the international competition selected 100 winning photographs, which are now on display at the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv. The exhibit, called "Global Nature, Local Nature," also showcases the winners of a local competition organized by the museum.
Each image is an incredible representation of our ability to emotionally connect with nature. Here are a few of our favorites:
The runner-up for the Animal Portraits category of the international Wildilfe Photographer of the Year competition, this photo by Hannes Lochner was taken in South Africa using a remote wireless set-up.
The exhibit features many more extraordinary nature photographs and will be on display through the end of August 2014.
