Wildlife photographer of the year and mammals category winner: A tale of two foxes by Don Gutoski (Canada). Surprising behaviour, witnessed in Wapusk national park, on Hudson Bay, Canada, in early winter. Red foxes dont actively hunt Arctic foxes, but where the ranges of two predators overlap, there can be conflict. Though the light was poor, the snow-covered tundra provided the backdrop for the moment that the red fox paused with the smaller fox in its mouth in a grim pose

Underwater photographer of the year. Winner and international macro winner: Nuno Sá (Portugal) with 50 Tons Of Me taken in the Algarve The natural reserve of Ria Formosa is home to the worlds largest population of the two species of seahorses found in the Mediterranean and Atlantic. However, the local university together with Project Seahorse has registered an 85% decline in populations between 2001 and 2009. Each year 50 tonnes of seahorses are caught for aquariums and traditional oriental medicines and captive breeding would really take the pressure off wild populations

GDT European wildlife photographer of the year. : Shadow walker by Richard Peters (UK). Taken in my back garden, the image shows the shadow of an urban fox on its nightly patrols ... I placed the camera up high enough to show the neighbouring house, and using a 30-second exposure setting, I also captured the stars in the night sky. I did not plan to include the upstairs light in the neighbours house, but it helps connect the human and wild elements of the image, giving context to the story. The camera was triggered by a light barrier when the fox walked by

GDT European wildlife photographer of the year. Winner mammals: Night star by Bence Mate (Hungary). I have always tried to explore new fields in nature photography. I especially like photographing animals at night ... this photo was made using a remote control camera that I had put in an old fish box. It was difficult to estimate in advance the necessary balance between the flash light and the natural light from the stars. I also hoped that I would not scare away the animal as the wild boars in our area are extremely shy. Luckily, it stood still during the shot

GDT European wildlife photographer of the year. Runner-up underwater world: Intruder by Wahrmut sobainsky (Germany). The American crayfish, an invasive species, was introduced from North America to central Europe around 1890. It not only drives out the local crayfish species in frightening measures, but also passes on the crayfish plague to which it is immune. This predominantly nocturnal species is mostly found sitting on visually unattractive sand or mud; much to the photographers joy, this one here obviously prefers the greenery of a German lake among tiny water snails
