Nature photography's winning shots in Turin

Turin's Regional Museum of Natural Sciences hosts the latest edition of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit until September 8th. The exhibit displays over 100 of the winning images from the 18-category contest (now in its 48th year) put on by London's Natural History Museum, in collaboration with BBC Wildlife Magazine.
More than 48,000 entries from 98 different countries were part of the competition, judged by a jury of esteemed wildlife experts and photographers.

The title to which participants most aspire, the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year, went to Canadian photog Paul Nicklen for his  "Bubble-jetting Emperor," spectacular scene of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica's Ross Sea. 
Meanwhile, England's own Owen Hearn was named Veolia Environnement Young Wildlife Photographer (for those 11-14 years in age) with "Flight Paths." 

And among the Italian entries were two special mentions for Fortunato Gatto and his "Celebration of a Grey Day" (Wildscapes category), and Hugo Wassermann's "Positioning" (Creative Visions)
