The last month was a bumper one for new material on our website, with more than 4000 images added. Some of the many highlights were a wealth of European wildlife, especially red foxes and wild wolves, big cats from around the world (including dramatic pumas hunting), whale and dolphin behaviour, gorillas and hippos, hummingbirds in flight, the Californian super-bloom and some great urban wildlife images. You can see more on our blog here.
