Paul Nicklen's 'Bubble Jetting Emperors' wins prestigious photography award 

On October 18th, it was announced that Canadian National Geographic Magazine photographer Paul Nicklen had won the 48th annual Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition for his photograph titled 'Bubble Jetting Emperor.' The fantastic photograph (shown above), which depicts a raft of Emperor Penguins swimming to the surface to feed their young, was taken while Nicklen was snorkeling in Antarctica. Says Nicklen, "They've been at sea for three weeks, their bellies are full of food, and they're bringing it back for their chicks. They're about to rocket out on to the ice." The photograph, along with the winners of the competition's other categories including The Gerald Durrell Award for Endangered Wildlife, is currently being shown in an exhibition at London's National History Museum.
