The World Nature Photography Awards has revealed its winners for 2022, and the final selected images are pretty damn awesome. High standards are always present for this annual competition, but this year it's safe to say they've been exceeded. 

A beautiful Snow Leopard, a tall Antillean Iguana, and a huddle of Japanese macaques monkeys are just a few of the images that struck Gold in this year's edition of the competition, showcasing nature and animals in a new light.
