SPANISH SPANIS wildlife photograph­er Jose Luis Ruiz Jiménez’s stunning images have won him an internatio­nal accolade.

The Wildlife Photograph­er of the Year exhibition will be on display at the Australian National Maritime Museum until October 31. Jiménez took out the top prize with intimate photos of a family of great crested grebes (above). He spent hours in chest high water to capture the animals in their natural habitat.
