A truly shocking sight, a muzzled polar bear being directed by a trainer, framed within a blue safety net that surrounded the perimeter of this circus ring. This is the frame that won #WPY56’s Wildlife Photojournalism category and is the result of an intense, two-year investigation into animal exploitation by @kirstenluce. This photo is hugely symbolic. The icon of Arctic wilderness, a massive predator, towering over a circus performer in an ice-skating outfit. The uneven power dynamic expressed further in the posture of the bear makes us more aware of the plight of animals exploited in this way. This is one of four polar bears in the travelling circus in Russia, Circus on Ice. Captured in Franz Josef Land they have been performing for 18 years. Images like these are challenging to see, but they’re important. Raising awareness of the exploitation of animals and the damage being done to wildlife on a global scale has never been more important as we look toward securing the future for our natural world.

The meadows near @andresdominguezblanco's home in Andalucia, Spain, are bright with flowers in the spring. This environment is where he would eventually take his category-winning image for #WPY56’s 10 Years and Under. A few days earlier, he had spotted some European stonechats hunting for insects on the far side of the meadow. Widespread in Europe, stonechats are usually in areas such as this year-round. Asking his father if he could drive him to the meadow so he could use it as a hide, he lent his lens on the windowsill and watched and waited. He was delighted when he saw some flitting by and when the sun had gone down, the low light intensified the vibrant colour of the birds. He watched this male closely and as it perched on this flower stem, it began to bend, resulting in a perfect balance. The #WPY56 exhibition at Natural History Museum, London is now open!

Lava flowed from a great opening on the side of the volcano, running along a huge tunnel and re-emerging further down the slope as an incandescent red river. In order to witness the scene, @lucianogaudenzio trekked up the volcano’s north face for several hours. He set the hot flow against the blue gaseous mist to capture, what he describes as, ‘the perfect moment’. Mount Etna, the most active volcano in Europe, has been erupting continuously for almost 30 years and threatens around 900,000 people. Phenomena like lava flows and lava fountains are common, with ash plumes less frequent. This is just the most recent phase in 15,000 years of volcanic activity – and a stark reminder of Etna’s power.

Kittens racing for cover, and the mother frozen in her decision-making. Shanyuan Li's rare picture of a family of Pallas’s cats on the remote steppes of the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau in northwest China is #WPY56’s winner in the Behaviour: Mammals category. This rare scene of playful Pallas’s cats took six years to capture. Hiding opposite an old marmot hole in which a family of cats had built its lair, Shanyuan waited. Hours of patience were rewarded when three kittens emerged to play while their parent kept a lookout. Upon the sighting of a Tibetan fox nearby, the youngsters were swiftly ushered back inside. Typically active at dawn and dusk, Pallas’s cats have flat heads, low-set ears and a light colouring, which help conceal them while hunting. Their habitat – mainly the grasslands of China, Mongolia and the Tibetan Plateau – faces disruption from mining and farming. Farmers poisoning rodents depletes the cats’ prey and subjects them to secondary toxicity, causing numbers to decline. - The #WPY56 exhibition at @Natural_History_Museum is now open!

Ο Ρώσος φωτογράφος Σεργκέι Γκορσκόφ ήθελε να φωτογραφίσει μια τίγρη της Σιβηρίας, κάτι που δεν ήταν καθόλου εύκολο.

Οι λήψεις απεικονίζουν μοναδικές στιγμές από τη ζωή των άγριων ζώων, εκπληκτικές εικόνες της φύσης, αλλά και από τη σχέση ανθρώπων και ζώων.
