Cicada by Shivang Mehta
Special Mention: SHIVANG MEHTA – ‘Cicada Rain’
Holding on to its tree perch, from where cicadas emit their typical, loud, buzzing sounds, this individual has been captured excreting waste water forcefully after imbibing tree sap, the principal food that provides nourishment for these insects. This image, was taken in Bandhavgarh after considerable experimentation with a remote-controlled trigger, while most others in the photographer's group had vanished to look for tigers!
