Amazing Photo Of Two Mice Fighting On A Tube Platform Wins Wildlife Photography Award

Finally, we have a winner!

A photo of two mice engaged in a fight at an Underground in London has won the National History Museum’s Wildlife Photo of the Year.

From these mice having a little tussle on a Tube Platform to an Orangutan resting all calm at ringside, the mice fighting moment was among the lead highlight of the competition.

Wining the yearly contest, Photographer Sam Rowley captured the split-second fight over scraps of food. Coming out on top after 48,000 photographs of animals were submitted to the competition, only 25 made the final shortlist.

‘Sam found the best way to photograph the mice inhabiting London’s underground was to lie on the platform and wait. He witnessed them fighting over scraps of foods dropped by a few times, possibly because it was abundant. The fight lasted a split second before one grab a crumb and went separate ways.’ The panel of judges explained.

‘Losing The Fight’, another entry was equally commended. Photographer Aaron Gekowski captured an Orangutan in boxing outfit at Bangkok’s Safari World.

Other striking images show white Arctic reindeer camouflaging against the snow as well as a Jaguar carrying an anaconda with her cub.
