Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Museum, announced Sergey Gorshkov as the grand title victor during an online awards ceremony live-streamed from the Museum on 13 October.

It has been announced that the "unique view" of a Siberian tiger embracing a fir tree has won this year's Wildlife Photographer Competition.

The photograph was taken using a camera trap, which triggers when a tiger walks by. "It's also a story told in glorious colour and texture of the comeback of the Amur tiger, a symbol of the Russian wilderness", one of the judges said.

Henry said there were no new health-care facility outbreaks between noon Tuesday and noon Wednesday and the outbreak at St. Of those active cases, 84 people are in hospital with 24 in intensive care.

In a recorded address for the prize ceremony on Tuesday evening, Kate, 38, said, "It is so wonderful to be back at the re-opened Natural History Museum where we can all enjoy its treasures once again". To take his award-winning shot, the photographer spent months searching for traces of the big cats on trees.

Once the largest subspecies of tigers found across northern Eurasia, all the way into Turkey and along the Caspian Sea, Amur tigers were hunted for their fur and bones until only 20-30 animals survived. The picture, titled The Embrace, shows the intimate moment in which the female tiger is seen embracing a tree, rubbing against the bark to leave her scent and mark territory.

The Duchess of Cambridge, patron of the Natural History Museum and a keen photographer herself, announced the victor in the London tourist attraction's famous Hintze Hall. "A great natural history moment captured perfectly". "The remarkable sight of the tigress immersed in her natural environment offers us hope, as recent reports suggest numbers are growing from dedicated conservation efforts", Littlewood added. The museum will let only a limited number of visitors following all safety guidelines during COVID-19 to ensure it is a "safe and welcoming experience" to view the photographs in a crowd-free gallery.
