Nature Picture Library – Favourite Nature Photographs from 2022

NPL squirrel

For many of us, 2022 has raced by, as a return to our pre-pandemic lives has brought newfound freedom, and fresh appreciation for the finer things in life. The dizzying ride of the last year is one we’re excited to look back on with this collection of our favourite nature photographs from 2022.

Alex Hyde discovered a microscopic marvel living in an ordinary clump of moss. Nick Garbutt and Lucas Bustamante created breath-taking images of wild pumas. And Tony Wu brought us one-of-a-kind images of flying squirrels. We hope these photographs, and many more you can discover in the blog, will ignite your imagination.

P.S. Don’t forget, as the new year approaches, to request your free copy of the Nature Picture Library 2023 desk calendar! And if you’re searching for Christmas presents for the nature-lovers in your life, we’re currently offering 15% off orders made on our prints site using the code NPLTHANKS (offer expires on 31st January).
