The Natural History Museum in London holds an annual contest to find the best wildlife photographers in the world. In 2019, they received 48,000 entries from 100 different countries, but there was only one winner: Yongginq Bao from China. He managed to capture the moment when a Tibetan fox prepared to attack a Himalayan marmot that had just come out of hibernation. This encounter couldn’t have gone unnoticed, and the marmot was struck by so many emotions that show on its face. It was one of the reasons why this photograph brought the photographer the award. Other photographers received a fair share of recognition as well, becoming winners in different categories.
