A photo competition organized by The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers has today revealed its winning images and the results are nothing short of stunning. The Nature in Action photo contest challenged photographers to look for action shots in the natural world plus interesting animal behaviors.

Nikon shooter Cecilie Bergan Stuedal from Innlandet, Norway, was selected as the overall winner of the competition with her extraordinarily sharp image captured of a Eurasian Sparrowhawk and a Eurasian Jay fighting over a dead tree stump, with wings widespread and talons at the ready.
