Images of an Iberian lynx framed in a doorway, cheetahs swimming in a rushing river, and blood trickling from a lioness' snout have all been revealed as part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

The 57th edition of the competition, which is hosted by the Natural History Museum in London, had a record number of entries, and a selection of "highly commended" photos was published Tuesday evening.

In a news release, Roz Kidman Cox, head of the judging panel, remarked, "It was the general calibre of entries that took us by surprise."

"With the majority of vacation plans being cancelled over the last year, photographers appear to have spent more time considering their options."

According to the news announcement, industry experts chose among 50,000 entries from photographers in 95 countries, evaluating for "creativity, originality, and technical brilliance."

In a news release, Doug Gurr, director of the Natural History Museum, remarked, "These stunning photographs illustrate the great diversity of life on Earth and stimulate curiosity and amazement."

"The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition emphasises the serious issues we confront and the collaborative action we need to take by telling the tale of a world under stress."

The category winners will be announced on October 12th, and their work will be displayed in an exhibition that will begin on October 15th and continue until June 5th, 2022.
