National Wildlife Winners
Photo by Hira Punjabi, Maharashtra, India: "On a frigid winter morning at India’s Tal Chappar animal sanctuary, Punjabi came upon two male blackbucks battling for dominance against a glowing backdrop of dust and light. The graceful animals, once overhunted, can now be seen in herds throughout India. Punjabi made the photograph with a 500mm telephoto lens."

You've got to see that crazy owl that won the Grand Prize....
