Focus on Hornbills
In the quest for making unique images, I am now feeling that the natural landscapes and its inhabitants have been portrayed sufficiently, the new set of nature images which make for unique images now fall in the domain of human-nature interaction. These set of images also draw a lot of emotion due to anthropocentric depiction. Like this image of Hornbills which were shot in abandoned cultivation, where they gather for mudbathing.

The percept that nature lives in isolation in pure natural areas is not true. We need to depict wildlife along with its interaction with humans as it is. The increasing conflict between humans and wildlife is a serious concern. I am just out a man-animal conflict situation. I feel if people are flooded with images of interactions of wildlife with humans we can curb destructive tendencies because images are no longer sensational.

I agree with you VMR. There has to be some food for thought beyond just the portrayal of beauty. The complementing question marks (posture of the birds) goes well here!!

Well said VMR sir.. Like the way you have positioned the hornbills.. Do you have a wider perspective of mudbathing to show this interaction?
