(WXYZ) — A picture of a standoff between a fox and marmot has won a wildlife photographer major honors.

It almost looks like a scene from a slapstick comedy.

A marmot stands frozen, on one foot with its jaw wide open as a fox charges it.

The image was captured by Chinese photographer Yongqing Bao.

He won the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, handed out by London's Natural History Museum.
