From olive oil raindrops to a contemplative polar bear, the winners in this year's皇家会出版摄影比赛有一个共同点:他们都庆祝科学。

这是组织者所说的比赛的第三年,“庆祝沟通科学的力量,并展示了探索世界的美丽形象。”

竞争于2015年推出,庆祝世界上最古老的持续科学杂志三十周年,皇家社会的哲学交易。

今年的整体胜利者以上,被彼得传达,这是一位英国南极调查的极地生态学家拍摄。传达拍摄南极冰盖以两个方向伸展,与双向飞机飞行以缩放。这张照片是在1995年在南部南极半岛的航班期间拍摄的。

Chosen from more than 1,100 photos, it's also the judges' top selection in the Earth Science and Climatology category.

“It's been an incredible privilege to work in the Antarctic for nearly 30 years now; every time I go there it takes my breath away," Covey said. "As a terrestrial ecologist, originally specialising in insects, you wouldn't think the inland areas of the continent could hold much scientific promise, but you would be so wrong!"

Giuseppe Suaria的照片拍摄了俄罗斯研究船只Akademik Tryshnikov,因为它靠在南极洲东部的Mertz冰川上。在冰川舌头下部署了罗波斯,在罗波斯,一辆远程操作的水下车辆(ROV)之前拍摄了图像。罗夫被派去了2010年从主体突破的大型突出冰突破的冰盖之后的熔化。

The photo was named runner-up in the Earth Science and Climatology category.

'橄榄油滴一起挂在一起'。 (照片:HervéElettro/皇家会出版照片比赛)

The winner in the Micro-imaging category, Hervé Elettro's photo features precariously hanging olive oil drops. He explains the science behind his inspiration.

“由Nephila Madagastariensis蜘蛛生产的微胶滴的启发,以捕捉其猎物,我们开始思考自己'如果这​​些液滴可以做的不仅仅是胶合吗?'表面张力,流体反对变形的能力,实际上允许液滴吞下任何纤维在压缩下使任何纤维松弛,从而拧紧纤维网对自然元素。理解这种机制的第一步是使用捕获丝的模型系统:滴在薄软纤维上。悬挂的橄榄油滴家庭出生。“

我们知道这很小Tardirdes非常有弹性, but who knew these water bears were also so photogenic, at least in an extremely close-up kind of way?

Vladimir Gross captured a 50-hour-old tardigrade embyro using a scanning electron microscope at a magnification of 1800x. His photo, which depicts the embryo at a mere 1/15 of a millimeter in length, was the runner-up in the Micro-imaging category.

“On an island filled with life and with the opportunity for incredible wildlife sightings, you learn to keep your camera close at hand," says Nico de Bruyn, winner of the Ecology and Environmental Science category.

他的照片具有虎鲸突然进入小提治国岛上的小湾,令人惊讶的是一只小企鹅王家,忙着在水中繁忙。De Bruyn说,当企鹅突然溅起的声音让他发出了鲸鱼的存在时,他正忙着在海滩上进一步进一步。

Normally pitcher plants would be quite happy when insects come parading their way, but the ants marching here are immune to the the slippery rim and structures that trap their lesser kind.

在这里,托马斯·德国·德国抓住了这些“无敌蚂蚁”,因为他们爬上了食肉吸收器植物的卷曲卷须,偶尔甚至在不安全地偷走了一点点美味的花蜜。

The image was runner up in the Ecology and Environmental Science category.

'respiro'。 (照片:Antonia Doncila /皇家会出版照片比赛)

行为类别的胜利者,Antonia Doncila的照片是在越过格陵兰海岸附近的垃圾海峡而拍摄的。

“由于北极海洋速度加热了与地球的其他地区相比,我们对我们来说是痛苦但对我们来说,在80°N海冰稀疏。在我们的旅程中,我们看到北极熊游泳开放水海洋与没有海冰的阴影让他们休息他们的沉重身体。Doncila写道,那些北极熊被注定会因过热而死于过热,“Doncila写道。

但她说,她的主题是幸运的。

“He found a portion of fast ice which rapidly became his home. His gaze into the water represents the product of our societal wrongdoings. It is also a symbol of hope because what has melted can become frozen again."

北极燕鸥队友队友,他们有偏好在地上做家园,看过普拉斯特大卫科斯坦尼。在挪威和北极之间的斯瓦尔巴德研究之旅,他发现了这些资源丰富的鸟类

“我遇到了这几个北极燕鸥,发现了一个聪明的解决方案来解决在人类改良的景观中找到一个良好的地方来解决艰难的任务:他们在一个被遗弃的铲子上制作了自己的房子,”他说。“这张照片还展示了伴侣之间的声音通信如何在燕鸥方面非常重要,以协调父母的努力,以实现成功的复制。”

他的照片是行为类别中的亚军。

'Lunar spotlight, South Pole, Antarctica'. (照片:Daniel Michalik /皇家会出版照片比赛)

Daniel Michalik, who is wintering at the South Pole working for the South Pole Telescope research collaborative, took this photo, which won the Astronomy category.

“Ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere create a rare optical phenomenon: a light pillar underneath the Moon. The cold dry atmosphere at the Geographic South Pole favors this and similar phenomena (sun/moon dogs, halos, arcs); they are much more often seen here than in the non-polar regions," Michalik says. "The light pillar creates a dramatic spotlight on the out-of-this-world appearance of the frozen Antarctic plateau."

“钻石戒指通过薄云”。 (Photo: Wei-Feng Xue /Royal Society Publishing Photo Competition)

在天文学类别中,魏丰薛雪的照片是2017年的美国日食,正如乔治亚州北部的总体路径所见。

“这是钻石戒指点燃一些非常thin cloud structures, looking almost like space clouds (i.e. a nebula). Also in the photo, the solar corona was dimmed a little by the thin clouds but was still visible, and some Baily's beads and solar prominences that can be seen around the diamond."

'acari陷入蜘蛛网'。 (照片:Bernardo Segura /皇家会出版照片比赛)

Bernardo Segura说,智利温带森林中奥斯特·森林属的蜘蛛蜘蛛建造的大规模网站很难难以错过。

在Nahuelbuta国家公园附近服用几张照片后,他意识到一些螺纹有可爱的蓝色色调。

“我也意识到这些螺纹可能专门从事猎物捕获,并且可以在螺纹内看到的弹簧结构可能与弹性有关。同时拍摄这种惊人的结构,我看到了一只小的acari挂网络可能落入网络和蜘蛛没有注意到。“

Segura令人难以忘怀的照片在微观成像类别中赢得了荣誉。

“雨季,绿树青蛙,以及生活的维护”。 (照片:Carlos Jared / Royal Society出版照片比赛)

一年中的八个月,小绿树青蛙Phyllomedusa Nordestina仍然隐藏在巴西半干旱沙漠的家中。但是在第一个夏季降雨之后,当干燥时,棕色景观开始变成一个青翠的绿色,树蛙醒来时周围的景观。

“The apparent fragile tree frogs follow this same tendency and change their usual brownish color to the fresh summer green. With this new garment, they mate within the flowers and leaves that also color the scenario, often (as in this case), with natural pomp," writes Carlos Jared, who won an honorable mention in the Ecology and Environmental Science category for his colorful image.

“Reproduction usually occurs in puddles or on the shores of small temporary swamps. Everything must be very fast because drought will ruthlessly return."

'Pele's Fire'。 (照片:Sabrina Koehler /皇家会出版照片比赛)

Sabrina Koehler says she didn't even need to fully extend her telephoto lens to capture the image in this photo, which earned an honorable mention in the Earth Science and Climatology category.

“我今年拥有独特的机会,捕捉大自然的创作,61G熔岩流在夏威夷的火山国家公园的活跃利卡奥火山的目前普鲁奥爆发遗址上,”她说。“夏威夷或大岛屿,是这座火山创造的一系列岛屿的最后一系列岛屿,仍然每年都越来越大。我乘船去了那里,因为这是你想要非常接近的方式。它令人惊叹。“

'扔蝎子 - 印度滚子玩杀戮'。 (照片:Susmita Datta / Royal Society出版照片比赛)

During an early morning safari drive at Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in India, everyone else was looking for big cats, but Susmita Datta saw something else.

“当每个人都忙着跟踪老虎运动时,这一刻发生在树枝上,让我有机会射击序列。虽然光很差(在处理部分处理),目击者仍然很好猎物与捕食者之间生存的自然历史时刻。这种印度滚轮在通过将其撞到树枝上完成后,将其展示其优越性并展示杀灭(蝎子)。“

照片在行为类别中赢得了荣誉。

'触手可及'。 (Photo: Petr Horálek/Royal Society Publishing Photo Competition)

Petr Horálek captured this ethereal portrait of a person reaching for the stars and "Within Reach" won an honorable mention for Astronomy.

“岩石,荒芜的景观唤起了一个外星人世界,补充了上面的宇宙展示。主要特点:我们美丽的家庭银河,银河系,穿过智利夜空的拱形,朝着左边的观察者构成观察者。来自数十亿的灯光星星结合起来创造银河系的光芒,巨大的黑暗尘埃阻挡了光线并创造了观察到的斑驳的模式。自然效果,爆炸,负责似乎从地平线发出的绿色和橙色光。“
