Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2015
Special Mention: Swaroop Singha Roy
Through the curtain-like petals of this Madagascar periwinkle flower Catharanthus roseus
, peers a deadly assassin. A jumping spider belonging to the Salticidae family, an expert ambush hunter, had just made a housefly catch and settled underneath the pink petals, looking to feast comfortably, when the Swaroop Singha Roy
noticed some movement between the petals. On a closer look, his camera locked in on this unusual and thrilling frame that highlights once again the natural treasures that are ours for the asking if we only seek to look.
