An exhibition of stunning wildlife pictures has been extended as crowds flock to see the snaps.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will now be at Tring’s Natural History Museum until April 19.

Museum head Paul Kitching said: “We are delighted that as we celebrate 50 years of Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the exhibition has been even more popular this year, and we have taken the decision to extend the run.

“For people thinking of visiting the exhibition my tip would be that weekdays between 2pm and 5pm tend to be the quietest times to visit.”

The acclaimed exhibition uniquely combines the work of talented young photographers, gifted amateurs and leading professionals, who have all been selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity.

There are 100 compelling and award-winning displays are on show and celebrate the rich array of life on our planet, its beauty and its fragility.
