Other categories in the annual competition include animal behavior, coast and marine, urban wildlife, and wild woods.

The competition not only celebrates the photographers’ skill and dedication to getting that perfect shot but also inspires people to care about animals and their U.K. habitats.

Speaking of habitats, in the “habitats” category, the winning photo showcases a red fox cautiously walking across a tree branch in Sherwood Pines Forest Park in Nottinghamshire, England. It’s a scene straight out of Robin Hood.

“The Tightrope Walker” by Daniel Valverde Fernandez

Ryan Stalker is the 2024 overall British Wildlife Photography Award winner, thanks to his poignant image of a soccer ball that drifted out to sea. Goose barnacles cover the ball below the waterline.

The image is visually interesting, but it also makes you think about the ways humans and animals co-exist.
