Finalist – Wildlife Photojournalist Award: Single Image
Sometimes it’s the fishing boats that look for killer whales and humpbacks, hoping to locate the shoals of herring that migrate to these Arctic Norwegian waters.
But the whales have also recently started to follow these boats. This image by Auden Rikardsen shows a large male killer whale feeding on herring that have been squeezed out of the boat’s closing fishing net.

The chaotic swarming of mayflies on Hungary’s River Rába is the subject of Imre Potyó’s stunning image.
For a few days each year – at the end of July or beginning of August – vast numbers of the adult insects emerge from the Danube tributary, where they developed as larvae.
