A swirling image of a peregrine falcon sweeping into a flock of starlings has won Manuel Presti this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.
The Italian caught the action scene, titled Sky Chase, high above a city park in Rome.
'Sky chase is a powerful image and, like it or not, it's one that you will never forget,' said Mark Carwardine, one of this year's judges.
