Stunning photos of a hungry chameleon and penguin seeking shelter among the best wildlife pics from across the globe – The Sun

A VULTURE swooping gracefully above a jagged rock face in the Pyrenees and a cautious penguin taking shelter in South Africa are among a dazzling array of nature photos.

Also in the 50 images shortlisted in the Agoro photo contest, #Nature2020, is a perfectly poised chameleon, snaring a dragonfly in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Agora's competition finalists also include six British snappers, who submitted stunning nature shots taken in Iceland, Namibia, US, and Italy's Dolomites.

Brit photographer Matt Cannon submitted a striking photo of Kirkjufell Mountain in Iceland – used as a filming location for hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones.

He said: "I wanted to convey the scale and versatile landscape of Iceland, and, contrary to most people's perceptions of Iceland, how luscious and green the country can be in its summer months.

"When I think of nature, I think of vast green landscapes, waterfalls and how we are just one small part of nature as a whole."

They've been shortlisted from more than 11,000 submissions from photographers across the globe.

It is now up to Agora users to vote for their favourite finalists through the free-to-use app.

The winner will be announced on March 4.
