Europe may not be able to boast about the Big Five, but there are still plenty of natural wonders to be enjoyed across the continent.
You know how these photography award stories go, so I’ll spare you much of the preamble.
The winners of the 2021 European wildlife photographer of the year awards have been chosen. The competition, run by the German Society for Nature Photography, saw 19 00 entries, with a shot by Angel Fitor of Spain coming out tops.
His photo was titled ‘Medusa Ballet’, as per The Guardian, and shows jellyfish in the Spanish lagoon of Mar Menor:
Ah, the serenity.
By the way, that photo right up from Magnus Lundgren was the winner in the Men and Nature category.

They may look a little clumsy on land, but underwater they really do move with a ballet-like grace.
