3. Jury's choice finalist of the National Geographic Moment Awards-2010, the biggest of its kind organised in India by Nat Geo. It saw a submission of 1.07 lac (one hundred seven thousand) entries from all over India from which  87 wildlife photographs were shortlisted (in the wildlife category) by the eminent judges, including the eminent film-maker Mr. Mike Pandey.

Three of my entries, named 'The Delicate Dragonfly' (Species: Dragonfly), 'I Saw You-- Touch Me Not!' (Species: Moth) and 'The Successful Survivor' (Species: Garden lizard) all photographed in the beautiful Satpura Biosphere Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, India were shortlisted by the jury in the 'Wildlife' category.

Organism: Moth
Description: This is a moth (not a butterfly; note its furry body, found typically in moths) with beautiful eye spot like patterns on its wings, to scare away predators, who are lead into thinking that the eyes belong to a bigger organism. The moth  was perfectly camouflaged in the mud and was roosting in a hole in a mountain heap.
Location: Satpura Biosphere Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, India
Camera: Canon PowerShot SX100 IS

Description: This is a macro shot of a mountain dragonfly perched on a branch. You would be able to see all its distinct parts: head, thorax, abdomen which is why it is called an insect. Also note the delicate pattern of nets embossed on the wings, and the thin filamentous hair on the legs.
Location: Satpura Biosphere Reserve, Madhya Pradesh, India
Camera: Canon PowerShot SX100 IS

Organism:Garden Lizard
Description: This is an intimate macro shot of a colour changing garden lizard. Reptiles such as these lizards have been on earth since millions of years, even before humans set their foot on the planet. They are truly, the successful survivors from our ancient past.
