Escape with these images of animals and nature from around the world
Penguin parents, sinister serpents, and dogs that think they're people
Unless you happen to live in a bush tent overlooking the Serengeti, you’re probably a little short on natural beauty right now. Beyond a daily walk and reruns of David Attenborough, many of us have spent a lot of time inside away from animals and greenery.
The CEWE Photo Awards hope to provide some brief respite. With over €250,000 worth of prizes across 10 categories, organisers have released the finest photos so far submitted to the animals and nature categories.
Submission doesn’t actually close until May – until then, these varied beautiful photos range from rivers in Alaska to Antarctica’s frozen wastes…

A horse gets up close and personal
A hungry bear tries to catch lunch
A kingfisher stops for a snack
A pair of owls share a tender moment
A penguin cares for its chick
A pigeon keeps cosy in the cold
A snake emerges from the depths
A trio of meerkats keeps a lookout
Oops! A squirrel drops its breakfast
Raindrops gather on a spider’s web
A puppy unimpressed by its first experience of snow
Two zebras show off their patterned coats
Two butterflies show that sharing is caring
Two dogs wrap up in the cold
