A closer look

An invited guest shares their insight on an image from Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Birds of the Midnight Sun taken by Knut-Sverre Horn.

There is a sense of living in the shadows, adapting and thriving in a human landscape that made this photograph resonate with the jury. This is what urban wildlife is all about. The photograph is also beautiful, the interplay between light and silhouette, the interaction between the adult and chicks come together to capture a wonderful moment - nature persevering.

— Kathy Moran, Editor and Chair of the Jury
