Paul Sauders wins the BBC/Veolia Underwater Wildlife Photographer of the YearOctober 20, 2011 - 10:22 am
Tough competition and amazing underwater captures in almost every category

Paul Sauders won the BBC/Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the Underwater World category. Paul's capture of a couple of walrus gracefully swimming  in the arctic waters amazes not only in terms of quality but makes you wonder - would you have the guts to slide down from an iceberg and do it?
The competition was obviously very tough but Paul was above everyone getting the runner up as well with yet another fearless behavior capture of a grizzly bear hunting on salmon at Katmai National Park in Alaska. We can see some stunning captures among the highly commended shots by Clark Miller, Alex Tattersall, Louis-Marie Préau, Nuno Sá and couple of images by Thomas Peter Peschak.
It is very pleasing to see underwater images taking over many other categories. Frenchman Joe Bunni won the Mammals Behavior with a split shot of a polar bear and the runner up is Richard Herrmann's shot of a blue whale feeding on krill by Los Coronados Islands in Baja California, Mexico. Couple of splits were highly commended: Bence Máté's feeding dalmatian pelicans shot in Lake Kerkini in Greece for Animal Portraits and Cyril Ruoso's frogs shot in a frozen lake some 2,000 metres up in the French Alps.

Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year is owned by the Natural History Museum and BBC Wildlife Magazine. Please visit the Natural History Museum's website to see all winning images.
