I came across this photograph while browsing The Guardian this evening, and viewed full size, it just about blew the screen off my laptop. It’s easy to see why Pedro Jarque Krebs, Peru, won the top prize in the 2018 Bird Photographer of the Year competition. Click the image to see it with a black background, where it really pops. Click the option below, right, for a larger image.
The Guardian’s gallery displays all the winners in a real feast for the eyes of both photographers and bird lovers. I urge you to check it out.
For more spectacular photos by Krebs, see his website.
