Winners of the Nature’s Best Photography competition

The winning photographs from the Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards evoke grandeur and beauty in nature — as well as moments that are remarkably universal. There is playfulness and motherly love, but also bickering within families and battling for dominance.

Over 20,000 photos were submitted to the contest. The prints, some up to 4 feet by 6 feet large, will be displayed in all their jewel-toned glory at the National Museum of Natural History. See some of the winners in the gallery above.

“I go in there all the time and watch visitors go through the exhibit,” Nature’s Best Photography magazine publisher Stephen Freligh said. “What you see unfold is heartwarming. You see tears, smiles.”

The exhibition will run from March 30 to Jan. 6.
