We encourage you to appreciate all of the magnificent gifts that mother nature has to offer. This obviously includes cannabis and the stunning, graphic, and detailed photographs taken from professional photographers for this year’s Wildlife Photographer competition. The Natural History Museum in London recently announced the winning images for the 2021 Wildlife Photographer competition.
With over 50,000 entries across 95 countries, it was tough to pick the winners. However, a few images are nothing but incredible, and we highly encourage you to roll up a j, hit your pipe, or any other way you ingest cannabis and get to scrolling through these surreal images. If you don’t live in climates where wildlife is abundant, here are some of the top photos from this year’s competition.
From the United States, photographer Zack Clothier discovered a grizzly bear examining his camera trap. Before the photo was snapped, Zack thought it would be ideal to place his camera near these bull elk remains. However, returning to the scene was incredibly difficult. He traveled through gushing meltwater with fallen trees to discover that his setup was ruined, and this was the last shot the camera captured.
Kuwait’s Majed Ali captured one of the most stunning portrait images of a gorilla closing its eyes during rainfall. Majed traveled for four hours to meet Kibande, a 40-year-old mountain gorilla. “The more we climbed, the hotter and more humid it got,” Majed said to the team at the Natural History Museum. Once the rain began to fall, Kibande basked in it and enjoyed the refreshing shower.
This is one of the most unique and intriguing photographs we’ve ever seen. Coming from the UK, Alex Mustard found a ghost pipefish hiding in the arms of a feather star. The image shows the array of vibrant colors in these species and portrays the confusion a predator would face when encountering these intimidating patterns.
The down under photographer Justin Gilligan created the stunning reflection of a marine ranger in the seaweed. Located in the world’s most southern tropical reef, Justin wanted to show how humans must take careful action and preserve these vibrant seaweed jungles. When the tide allowed a 40-minute window for the photo op, it took Justin three days of trial and error until he got the perfect shot.
Trigger warning for arachnophobes, the Israeli/Canadian photographer Gil Wizen found a venomous Brazilian underneath his bed. Once he noticed a plethora of tiny spiders in his bedroom, he thought, “where’s the mama”? Well, she was under the bed guarding her brood. Before getting out of there, he captured an image of the Brazillian Wandering Spider and used forced perspective to make it appear massive when in reality, it’s about the size of a human hand.
