Photographer Anjani Singamaneni captured a brown fish-owl and a fruit bat in a single serendipitous frame in this 2022 photo contest entry
ANJANI SINGAMANENI WAS ON A MISSION to photograph wildlife in India’s Nallamala Forest, but he never guessed he’d catch this serendipitous encounter. While scouting locations within the tiger preserve on assignment for the state forest department, he spotted a brown fish-owl hunting streamside. He set up his camera trap and, a month later, caught this honorable mention from our 2022 photo contest. “The fruit bat coming into the frame was the icing on the cake,” he says. “Nature blessed me with this surprise.”
