Best Wildlife Photos
The Natural History Museum of London and the BBC Wildlife Magazine honored their choices for the top seven wild animal photos of 2008. The pictures range from the overall winner, an eerily beautiful photo of an endangered snow leopard, to a disturbing photo of a black colobus monkey's fur being singed off before being sold at an illegal bush-meat market in Gabon, to a photo of a rare black-crested macaque that is so surreal it can truly be called art. Included with the photos are short descriptions on how and where each photographer captured the prize winning selection.
Take a look at them on the National Geographic website. You'll be fascinated, unsettled, and amazed.
