*excerpt: The prestigious competition, run by the Virginia-based National Wildlife Federation (NWF), drew more than 29,700 entries from around the globe, with winning images for 2020 including snaps of a pair of playful baboons in Zambia, the stunning Milky Way over the Yellowstone River and a hapless gladiator tree frog being devoured by a parrot snake in Costa Rica. The overall grand prize winner was Alex Rose from Woodridge, Illinois, with her amazing shot of an American crocodile gulping for breath in Cuba’s Jardines de la Reina archipelago. Lisa Moore, editorial director and editor-in-chief of National Wildlife magazine, said: 'Every photographer who enters our contest is someone we think of as a "Nature's Witness", using their passion for the natural world to create beautiful images that can inspire conservation. 'Whether they’re alone in the dark shooting the Milky Way or quietly strolling through a neighborhood to capture the beauty of a butterfly, they witness the majesty — and fragility — of nature and the world we’re all committed to protecting.' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/escape/article-8883399/National-Wildlife-2020-Photo-Contest-stunning-winning-images-revealed.html
