A Sneak Preview Of The Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Exhibition
It came from the deep by Fabien Michenet / Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015.

One of our favourite exhibitions, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum, (we gave it five stars last year) returns in October — and we've got a sneaky look at some of the images which will be on display.

From the alien-like juvenile octopus above, photographed by Fabien Michenet in the deep water off the coast of Tahiti, to the drama of battling Komodo dragons caught by Russia's Andrey Gudkov, the quality of the photography in the exhibition is exceptional.

You can see some of the photographs in the gallery below. Tickets are available to book via the Natural History Museum's website, ahead of the exhibition opening on 16 October.
