National Geographic pays a tribute to the best nature photographer in an annual photo competition, and this year’s winning entries for the four categories (Wildlife, Landscapes, Aerials and Underwater) are simply amazing. Jayaprakash Joghee Bohan’s images of an orangutan in Borneo won the Grand Prize, and deservingly so. See all the category winners below.
