Who's the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer winner in 2016?
North Terrace, Adelaide South Australia 5000
Australia's definitely a photogenic place, but there's plenty of competition when it comes to getting the perfect photograph. The Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition is owned by the South Australian Museum, where the finalist's work will be shown, as well as Sydney's Australian Museum for the first time.
Take the many entries vying for the top prize of Australian Geographic's Nature Photographer of the Year 2016. This year the winner is Matthew McIntosh of Queensland, Australia, with his incredible image "Piercing Headache."

Matthew McIntosh said "With my headlamp light failing, I managed to take just one photo of uranotaenia mosquitoes, also affectionately known as "frog flies", happily feeding from a frog’s head. Luckily it turned out more or less as I intended."
