At the annual contest "The Best Wildlife Photo – LUMIX People's Choice", the 25-year-old British photographer Sam Rowley received a national award for the shot of the battle of two mice in a city subway.

Fans of this annual competition were asked to vote for the best pictures that did not receive the main jury prizes in October 2019. And the mice, who started a fight for a piece of food, dropped by some passenger, took a confident first place.

As Sam Rowley said, all residents of the British capital and visitors to the city are well aware of how many metro black little mice are snooping around on the platform and tracks. He was so fascinated by these creatures that he spent almost a week underground, trying to take a good picture.

And then one night he was lucky … Two mice "clashed" in a duel on the platform. Their battle lasted about a second, then one of them grabbed the baby, and they scattered in different directions. But the moment of the fight lying on the platform Rowley still managed to shoot.

28 thousand people voted for this photo, choosing applicants for the award in the nomination "Best Wildlife Photo", announced by the London Museum of Natural History. And now, “Disassembly on the platform” along with the other 24 winning photographs will be presented in the museum at the exhibition, which will last until May 31.

The museum’s website reports that the winning shot was shot on a Nikon D500 camera with a 105 mm lens; shutter speed – 1/125 sec., aperture f2.8, ISO 1000.
