October highlights from Nature Picture Library
There was a really strong mix of new marine images, including whales, dolphins, sea turtles, seahorses, octopus and lots of bizarre fish and invertebrates.
In addition, Nature Picture Library would like to flag up wild snow leopards, urban foxes, South American wildlife and some powerful environmental images.
These cover forest clearance, marine plastics and the US/Mexico border wall. Meanwhile, new contributor Nigel Cattlin provides strong in-depth coverage on agricultural and horticultural pests and diseases.
You can order prints of some of the favourite images from this month on the prints site.
