Sky chase – Manuel Presti

Manuel Presti’s photograph “Sky Chase” is the overall winner of this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, organised by the Natural History Museum, London, UK, and BBC Wildlife Magazine.

    “I felt the fear and the starlings’ urgent need to survive, and the psychological pressure of the falcon as it dive-bombed the small birds.”
