A Bottlenose dolphin surfs the tunnel of a giant wave. “In the Living Room” by George Karbus is the winner of this year’s British Wildlife Photography Awards. As he describes the scene:
“I encountered this playful dolphin who started to surf the deep tube inside the waves. Each time the dolphin got into the wave, I dived underneath, held my breath and waited for the moment when he would swish through a silver barrel close enough to my lens. Water visibility is always very limited in Ireland, and I was very lucky to get a shot like this.”
Some of the other honors:
“The Three Stooges” by Richard Peters was one of the winners in the Animal Portraits category.
