From amazing animals to peculiar plants, the Otago Wildlife Photography Competition, organised by the Otago Museum, again attracted a range of stunning images.

Otago lived up to its tag as the wildlife capital of New Zealand, providing a natural source of inspiration for these amateur photographers.

The competition consists of three subject categories, animals, plants, and human impact on the environment.

The overall winner is Elanor Gale. An exhibition of the photographs opened at the Otago Museum today.
