Stunning Photos of the 2014 Wildlife Photography Finalists

I just had to share these stunning photographs. In equal measure I am enthralled with the final product, mesmerised by the textures and colours and fascinated by the patience that it took and angle at which the picture was taken.

They can rightfully be classified as works of art.
