National Geographic Announces Nature Photographer of the Year Winners

-

Greg Lecoeur’s photo of Cape Gannets, sardines and dolphins has won the grand prize of National Geographic’s Nature Photographer of the Year contest.

Scott Portelli’s “Jellyfish Feast” — a photo of sea turtles eating jellyfish — won Honorable Mention in the “Action” category.

Lecoeur took the award-winning photo off Port Saint John’s, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Lecoeur told National Geographic:

“I captured this image during the migration of the sardines along the wild coast of South Africa. Natural predation, sardines are preyed upon by cape gannet birds and common dolphins.”
