Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2015
Special Mention: Rohit Nagar
Eye Spy: Rohit Nagar has two good things going with this image – a good picture and a good story. In Ahmedabad, when a fledging Spotted Owlet Athene brama crash-landed while learning to fly, Rohit carefully placed it back on its tree to keep it safe from urban predators. For the rest of the day, the baby bird sporadically used a hole in the tree as a peep hole to view the big bad world beyond. This wonderfully enigmatic photo sparks the imagination, and won unanimous approval for its unique framing.
