Finalists 2018

We asked scientists to send us their photographs for 2018, and in response we received hundreds of photographs in the categories of Astronomy, Behaviour, Earth Science and Climatology, Ecology and Environmental Science, and Micro-imaging. 

From hot-air balloons across a volcanic landscape, to the sighting of a Strawberry Moon and a lizard almost hidden among the leaves, our entrants truly excelled themselves this year.

See the winning images below, along with the runners up and honourable mentions. The caption for each photograph tells the story of the science, and the image, in the photographer's own words.
