Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2014
SPECIAL MENTION: ADITYA SINGH
In Safe Jaws: In March 2014, the beloved Ranthambhore tigress Noor, delivered a litter. A few weeks later, the photographer watched spellbound as she led her cubs to a chital kill stowed away in a cave. The first young one obediently followed its mother, but the second one obstinately settled down in a pool of water. After depositing her first child in the cave, Noor returned to bodily lift this cub in her gentle jaws and carry it to the larder.
