World 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition

The winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition were revealed today at a ceremony at the Natural History Museum, London. American photographer Tim Laman won Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 for his image, Entwined lives. It frames a critically endangered Bornean orangutan above the Indonesian rainforest. Mr. Laman spent three days rope-climbing the 30 metre tall tree to set several GoPro cameras that he could trigger remotely. This captured the orangutan's face from above within a wide-angle perspective of the forest below.
