Bondar’s picks included a close encounter between humans and wild gorillas near Bwindi National Park in Uganda, the mating dance of the Australian peacock spider, an Octopus pulling its tentacled self across land, boas preying on bats as they emerge from a cave, and a breathtaking murmuration of starlings.
