The Natural History Museum has announced the 2016 finalists of its Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, bringing into stunning detail perfectly timed images of the world’s most remarkable animals.

From undulating cuttlefish off the coast of Australia to the moment a killer whale makes a move on a fishing boat’s catch, the finalists in 16 categories that make up the adult competition brought into focus scenes of the natural world that few people ever glimpse. 

Finalists were recently announced along with those in the youth competition, both of which will be part of an exhibit that travels worldwide. The next competition will open for entries on Oct 24 and close on Dec 15. If you’d like to enter your own brilliant image visit the Natural History Museum.
