The late Steve Irwin gained worldwide recognition as The Crocodile Hunter who shared the beauty of nature and wildlife. His 14-year-old son Robert Irwin is now doing the same thing, except he’s alsobehind the camera in addition to being in front of it. And one of Robert’s photos was just honored by a top photo competition.
When Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) unveiled its 2018 winners in October, one of the highly commended photos in the 11-14 Years Old category was a photo by Robert.
Robert says he spent a month visiting a remote swamp in northern Queensland to capture the photo, which shows a huntsman spider eating a frog. It’s one of the few photos showing this that exist.
WPY is in its 54th year and bills itself as “the most prestigious nature photography competition in the world.”
