Close-up of a walrus, its back against a breaking wave, in Cape Vankarem in Chukotka, Russia.
“Every autumn walruses swim to this rookery,” Korostelev writes.
“One day, walking along the beach away from the rookery, I came across a lone walrus … sleeping on the shore, its tusks [stuck] in the sand.
I carefully crept up to it and photographed it with a wide-angle lens.”

“This is the most unexpected split photo I’ve seen,” writes Enric Sala,.
“The lonely krill seems to be checking for the presence of the penguin predator.
At the same time, we can see the ice and landscape on the surface.
It's mostly monochromatic, but the reddish krill attracts one's eye.”
