If you're in Sydney this weekend and actually having the weekend off, it might be worth making your way to the Australian Museum for the opening of the annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition

The exhibition is on from 9.30am-4pm Saturday and Sunday and looks fantastic, especially THIS incredible photo of a green sea turtle and this image of a giant otter treading water. The competition has been running for 48 years, and - fittingly - received just over 48 thousand entries.
