It’s human nature to get a little star-struck now and again. It is understandable that most wildlife enthusiasts have certain animals, such as elephants, tigers and bears, high on their wish list of subjects to photograph. Since these star animals make excellent subjects to photograph, we often tend to overlook commonly found animals which are great subjects for photography as well. Wildlife photography is the product of many factors, principally content and light. A star animal such as a tiger or a leopard in the viewfinder does not always guarantee a great image. Many animals that are usually neglected are easy to access and are widely distributed. For example, bonnet macaques (Macaca radiata) are a hugely fun subject to photograph and can be the subject of some great shots but are frequently ignored in preference to other primates. These are a few photographs that I had taken during my visit to Nandi Hills near Bengaluru.
