The BiodiverCity Photo Contest aims at encouraging common people to involve themselves in this pan-India mission of photo documenting the flora and fauna around them with whatever camera they have, including the mobile one.
The initiative is spearheaded by Mohammed Dilawar, a conservationist with the Nature Forever Society (NFS). Photographs can be of plants, insects, reptiles, birds, natural landscapes around human habitations. Pictures taken inside national parks and protected areas as well as those of domesticated and caged animals and pets are not allowed.
A great example of how the birds have adapted to the urbanization. The photographer has composed the image well showing the roosting of Pelicans on the wire and the transmission tower in the background. The image perfectly depicts the theme of the competition.2nd Prize - Ants
The photographer has captured a great behavioral aspect of the ants here. Pretty crisp and sharp image which is well composed.3rd Prize - Birds beside Apartments
Another great example showing how the birds have adapted to the development happening in the cities. 4 different species on the same tree is not something we get to see regularly.
