Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2015

Special Mention: Ansar Khan

Father Superior: In one fell swoop, this Bronze-winged Jacana Metopidius indicus defies the patriarchy that insists child nurturing and protection is the mother’s job. In Bharatpur, Ansar Khan was alerted to the presence of a Marsh Harrier by the cries of alarm that rang through the park. He watched as this feathered father protectively swept his two chicks under wing to keep them safe from the hovering raptor, and photographed the exact moment at which the bird appeared to be some mythological six-legged creature.
