stunning images shortlisted for wildlife photographer of the year peoples choice award

(CNN) — A coconut octopus, a burning forest, a rare rhino’s last moments and a pair of sleeping squirrels all feature in the shortlist for the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 People’s Choice Award.

Shortlisted from more than 49,000 entries from around the world, the 25 images, released Tuesday, show creatures photographed in destinations including oceans, rivers, forests, captivity, shrubland and even suburbia.

Organizers are asking the public to vote for the winning image, which will be announced in February 2021 and showcased in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at London’s Natural History Museum until July 2021.

Creatures range from tiny to huge, from two squirrels snuggling in a nest of foliage in the Scottish highlands, to a Bhutanese takin roaming at high altitude and a huge lion presiding over a stormy slab of granite.

As the weather grew colder, two Eurasian red squirrels found comfort and warmth in a box photographer Neil Anderson had put up in one of the pine trees near his home in the Scottish Highlands.

Many of the images also explore the devastating relationship between humans and animals, and profile the disappearing natural world, with photos of forest fires, near-extinct species and wildlife roaming across urban settlements.

The awards feature work from both amateur and professional photographers from around the world.
