The Natural History Museum has officially announced Brent Stirton as this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his stunning image of a de-horned black rhino in South Africa. Amongst the winners and finalists were five Australian wildlife photographers, including Justin Gilligan, the AG Wildlife Photographer of the Year, and Chris Bray and Gerry Pearce, long-time AG contributors.
The Australian Museum has officially opened its new permanent exhibition, 200 treasures of the Australian Museum, in partnership with Westpac. The exhibition— staged in the Long Gallery, Australia's oldest museum gallery— now holds some of the country's most precious items. These are some of the highlights.

COMMON BRUSHTAIL POSSUM, TRICHOSURUS VULPECULA. In the Tone-Perup Nature Reserve near Manjimup in south western WA, a common brushtail possum sleeps the whole day in an old unused oven. Every night, it comes out through a pipe in the wall to feed. One evening, we waited for it to come out so that we could watch it and shoot some pictures.
