Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016

This year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 is Tim Laman, who won for his incredible GoPro photo of a climbing orangutan. Called “Entwined Lives,” the photo shows a young male orangutan returning to feast on a crop of figs. After three days of climbing up and down himself, the photographer hid several GoPro cameras in the canopy, triggering them remotely from the forest floor when he saw the orangutan climbing.

The photo was taken in Gunung Palung National Park in Indonesia. You can see more winners over on the Natural History Museum website.
