I don’t know whether you have to register to see these photos, but here’s the National Geographic slideshow of the best animal photos of the year.
The Siberian tiger that won first place is not my favorite. I think it won because tigers are cool and Siberian tigers extra cool, but still, I wouldn’t have put that photo up for first place out of this batch of great photos.
The one with the grebes is possibly my favorite.
The wasp one is amazing.
That Pallas cat photo is going to take the internet by storm, or at least it ought to. That’s the best picture of Pallas cats I’ve ever seen, for sure.
