“Japanese macaques on Awaji Island in Japan form huddles consisting of many individual monkeys, sometimes reaching more than thirty. In other places, huddles are usually made up of just a few, rarely more than ten. Cuddling and grooming are among several possible reasons for making a huddle. It begins with the mother and baby cuddling. Other females and young males then join in, as well as other cuddling groups. This photo captures a rare moment during the lactation season when three pairs of monkeys have formed a huddle after grooming. Most Awaji monkeys are non-aggressive and when they are raising their babies, mothers create individual communities that have no social hierarchies.”

“The tree is seen as a sacred symbol, which carries significant meanings in both religious and spiritual philosophies. From above the surrounding sheep tracks combined with the fallen tree reminded me of the Tree of Life. While the aerial perspective focuses on the earth, you can see the pooled water in the sheep tracks reflecting hints of blue from the sky. While this represents many different things, for me it communicates the interconnection of all things, beginnings and endings, the cycling of life.”

#9 GOLD: VLADISLAV TASEV, UK

“A beautiful snow leopard triggers my camera trap high up in the Indian Himalayas. I captured this image during a 3-year camera trap project in the Ladakh region in northerm India. The mystery surrounding the snow leopard always fascinated me. They are some of the most difficult large cats to photograph in the wild. Not only because of their incredible stealth, but also because of the remote environment they live in.”
