A mallard duckling raises its head as a tiny fly hovers above it. In another scene, a swallow can be seen flying through a window with broken glass, and the bird maneuvers its body to make sure that it won’t get hurt as it goes through the window. Meanwhile, a shag, probably searching for food, dives deep into the water.
These are just some of the best photos of the 2021 Bird Photographer of the Year Contest that Colossal has compiled. See more of these over at the site.
