The Best Wildlife Photograph of 2016 Was Shot with a GoPro

Specifically, a GoPro HERO4 Black.

Tim Laman

Every year, London’s Natural History Museum holds a Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition to showcase “the world’s very best nature photography.” The competition, which is in its 52nd year, contains a great number of “Adult” and “Young” (age 17 and younger) awards in such categories as Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Invertebrates, Plants and Under Water.

The Adult Grand Title for 2016 went to American Tim Laman, who captured a young male orangutan eating figs in the Indonesian rainforest with his GoPro HERO4 Black. The Young Grand Title winner was the UK’s Gideon Knight, who used a Canon EOS 7D Mark I to capture the silhouette of a crow in London’s Valentines Park.
