When Wild Wonders of Europe launched the biggest nature photography project ever, we gladly agreed to share the spectacular professional photographs with our readers at TreeHugger. As a result, we have enjoyed some stunning photos, ranging from mountain monarchs to monsters of the maelstrom, from proud predators to our wild neighbors.
This slideshow is the last in this series, a selection of the best animal-in-action and stunning nature photos from the coffee table book Wild Wonders of Europe, by Staffan Widstrand, Florian Möllers, Peter Cairns, and Bridget Wijnberg, and available for $50 through Abrams Books. The 288-page book is packed with more than 250 full-color photographs. A short excerpt of text from the book accompanies the photos shown here.
