Once again best wildlife photographer - IPA

The jury was impressed by Beusker’s series of ten wild animal portraits. The cover image of the series adorns the cover of his coffee table book “Look into my Eyes” – a black panther. The winning photo of the same name puts the viewer at eye level with the wild animal.
