Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012

The winners of the Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 were announced today. As ever, a collection of truly amazing photographs, from bubble-jetting emperors to leaping lemurs and squabbling jays. The photographs are being exhibited at the Natural History Museum in London from tomorrow. They will then be going on tour around the country and the world from November.
