The first four winning photographs from the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition have been announced, and they are spectacular.

The first competition took place in 1965 and received just 361 submissions. Today, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year judges receive almost 42,000 entries from 96 countries, and the competition is one of the most prestigious photography events of its kind. This year's 100 winning images will go on an international tour from October 2014 to August 2015.
