A striking portrait of a Helena's tree frog peering through the night has won the British Ecological Society's annual photography competition.
Conservation photographer and evolutionary biologist Roberto García Roa took the picture in the Tambopata reserve in the Peruvian Amazon.
"Like two beacons in the dark, the striking eyes... seem to glow in the darkness of the night," he said.
Illegal gold mining has taken a huge environmental toll on the reserve.
"It is paradoxical to see the eyes of this frog as small golden pearls," said Mr García Roa. "Because in reality, the true treasure lies in ensuring the protection of this area and its inhabitants."
The annual photography competition focuses on showcasing the beauty of ecology.
Here is a selection of the winning pictures:
