Featured on the Cover of the Sanctuary Asia magazine’s February 2007 issue, this unique natural history behaviour image was one of the first photographs to be published for Jayanth Sharma.

Monitor Lizard

Bandipur Tiger Reserve is a good place to spot Monitor Lizards and this rare sight of Monitor Lizards combating in a bipedal fashion makes the image memorable for Jayanth. About the image, he says – “While on a safari in Bandipur, a friend of mine spotted this action which was a challenging task to photograph. The exposure demand was 1/4 sec even at f/2.8 and I blindly increased the shutter speed to 1/60 sec to get this action frozen but ended up with a fast exposure that I recovered on the computer by brightening the picture.”
