23) Capturing an underwater photograph of a massive brown bear as it fishes for salmon might seem like an impossible—and impossibly dangerous—feat. But with ingenuity, patience, and an abundance of bears, the wildlife photographer Mikhail Korostelev managed to do just that. To improve his chances, Korostelev ventured to the South Kamchatka Sanctuary, an isolated, 795,000-acre federally protected reserve on the tip of Russia’s easternmost peninsula. Not only is this home to the largest of all protected brown-bear populations in Russia, the sanctuary’s rivers see some of the largest salmon runs along the Pacific Coast. Along the Ozemaya River, one of the bears’ favorite fishing haunts, Korostelev submerged a remotely operated camera and waited. Before long, a curious bear happened upon the unusual object sitting on the river bottom, and, as it began to investigate, Korostelev snapped this breathtaking photograph.

24) In 2018, Australia experienced its third-hottest year on record—temperatures that, coupled with historic droughts, created prime conditions for bushfires. For slow-moving koalas, the odds of surviving fast-burning blazes like these are slim. Which made photographer Julie Fletcher’s discovery on this day all the more surprising. Having set out to document the desolate, fire-ravaged forests on Kangaroo Island off South Australia, Fletcher watched as the determined koala, its fur tinged burnt sienna, climbed a tree and began to munch charred, crispy leaves. “He was watching me the whole time,” she says, “with an intensity that told the story.” Photo: Julie Fletcher / BigPicture Photography Competition, Terrestrial Wildlife Finalist
