Photographer Zack Seckler flying in an ultra-light just a few hundred feet off the ground takes these awesome photos of the wildlife for his series Botswana.
He explains: "it was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. Flying 100 feet over herds of wild animals in a plane with no windows was an unforgettable experience. I was privy to views and perspectives that very few get to see. As a photographer, I was humbled. I’m always thinking about new ways to view the world. This series quite literally changed my view, showing me that simple changes can create profound results."
The Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide sponsor the 2012 Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest. Around 100 images pulled from 48,000 by an international panel of judges. The amazing photos were shown for the first time yesterday at London’s Natural History Museum and will be on exhibit there through March 2013, before going on a world tour.

Poem of the Day
Pairing images together is a little bit like writing an analogy. Pairing videos together is like writing a metaphor: the points of comparison bleed almost entirely together.
The World Wildlife Foundation has this new promo video which clearly is interested in removing the barriers in our own thinking between the world and the natural world.
