As the coronavirus continues to spread around the world, travel is mostly a no-go. But people are desperate to be transported beyond the four walls of their home or office — which is where wildlife photography can come in handy. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is run by London’s Natural History Museum. This year, a whopping 49,000 images were submitted by professionals and amateurs around the world. The winner was recently announced as Sergey Gorshkov for his image "The Embrace," which shows a Siberian tiger hugging a large old tree in the Land of the Leopard National Park in Russia’s far east.
