Grand Title Winner 2018, Animal Portraits
Two Qinling golden snub-nosed monkeys perch on their mossy seat in the temperate forest of China's Qinling Mountains, the only place these endangered monkeys can now be found. By shooting the male from behind, Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten was able to capture both his majestic pelage and striking blue face.
