While out on safari most people are searching for a sighting of the Big 5 but sometimes things don’t go quite as planned when looking for these safari creatures. Sometimes more elusive creatures make an appearance or other times it is simply too hot for these animals to emerge from the bush. Despite these factors, there is a magic that happens when a photographer waits long enough to get that perfect photo.
Our photographers have submitted some sensational works to our Wildlife Portraits category and you can do the same before the competition for this category closes at the end of September. Along with a pair of Swarovski binoculars, you stand a chance to win our grand prize (a nine-day luxury safari lodge stay) if you are crowned a category winner! Read below to see some the quirkiest shots captured by our contestants and leave a comment about your favourite.
