This fabulous image of a female peregrine falcon attacking a pelican—to protect her young—won this year's Bird Photographer of the Year award. It was taken by Jack Zhi who says: "I love the eyes of the pelican in this image—surprised and scared. The action was fast, and over in the blink of an eye. But I'll remember that moment forever." BBC News has a lovely gallery of images—or head over to the awards website.
