Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2015
Special Mention: Lingesh Kalingarayar
An extraordinary vantage point gave this image of a commonly-photographed species – elephants Elephas maximus, a unique perspective. A mother and calf wade through the Injipara river near a shola grassland among the Anamalai Range. As the mother diverged from the herd to enter the river, her calf followed. And with every step forward, beautiful ripple formations enhanced the scene, presenting the photographer with this image.
