This portrait of a mature male Asian sheepshead wrasse (Semicossyphus reticulatus) that I took last year* in Japan will receive recognition (Highly Commended, Animal Portraits category) at the upcoming 54th Wildlife Photographer of the Year (#WPY54) awards ceremony at the Natural History Museum, London on 16 October.
I unfortunately will not be able to attend the gathering this year. I will be out photographing.
But If you’re in London or planning to visit soon, definitely go see the exhibit, which starts on 17 October!
