2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest

Photo by Gordon Illg
Ghostly Snow Geese
These Snow Geese looked like ghosts in the pink early morning light as they landed among Sandhill Cranes in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, in New Mexico, US.   Gordon had no control over the patterns made by the landing geese.   All he could do was compose the image around the cranes and keep pushing the shutter button as the geese dropped down.   This photo is one 25 images chosen by the UK's Natural History Museum for its 2016 short list of Wildlife Photographer of the Year candidates. The people's choice winning photo of the year will be determined after January 10, 1917.
