Mammal Photographer of the Year 2013, 15 incredible photos of mammals

Roy Rimmer won the first prize with this photo of a rat busy jumping between two cans of paint. The shot, awarded by the jury because it contributes to making this animal more pleasant, generally feared, has however aroused controversy in the English public, which has challenged the assignment of the prize to the photo of an animal kept in captivity.

The fox is more like a dog than you think: just look at it while licking a window pane. Julie Milne won second place with this photo.

Third place, a photo of a little mouse biting a blackberry early in the morning. Rodents defeated the competition by winning two podium positions.

The author of this shot describes the moment in which the photo was taken as a meeting of rare beauty with a young roe deer: photographer and subject remained for a few moments to look at each other in the fog, in the morning silence of the Malham Tarn Field Center, a Yorkshire park.

In this case the photographer, not yet 18 years old, remained lurking in the mud like a marine to capture a water rat in the grass.

When he went to the Firth of Forth (an inlet on the east coast of Scotland) to photograph dolphins, Alessandro Oggioni, an Italian from Monza, found himself surrounded by people who had had his own idea. In order to get close to the cetaceans, he had to plunge into the cold water. But it was worth it: the shot won the prize for the section reserved for underage photographers.

Wild life: the most incredible scuffles in the animal world

A seal surfs in northern Cornwall.

The antennas of a red deer and, in the background, those of a television station: all, immersed in the fog of a London Sunday morning.

Funny scuffle between two gray seals: the one on the left seems bent with laughter, the other perhaps does not like and pulls a flick of the fin on the snout.

Cheese! The most contagious animal smiles

Again a little mouse, this time with a comic expression: the poor rodent seems really terrified, as he ends up in the clutches of a human in Scotland.

"Volpe con pranzo" is the title of this photo by David Gibbon.
