De Franse fotograaf en professor in de mariene moleculaire ecologie Galice Hoarau is uitgeroepen tot de winnaar van de Close-up Photographer of the Year 2020. Hij maakte een prachtige foto van een Leptocephalus (een soort slangaal) bij het Indonesische eiland Lembeh. Van de meer dan 6.500 ingezonden beelden van fotografen uit 52 landen, maakte hij de meest bijzondere, vond de jury.
