The format of this review is going to be different because the book is totally different from the usual books that I read and review. This book is a sheer treat to one’s eyes. Capturing Wildlife Moments in India contains 120 photographs of animals and birds of India, photographed from visits to over 30 parks, sanctuaries and other locations.
The photographer has come up with this book because he wants to use the power of photography to reach young adults and inspire them to preserve what is left in the rich biodiversity of India. The beautiful but endangered species needs to be conserved in their natural habitat. And this book has the photos which bring out the innocence of this magnificent wildlife species which are forced to live in the fragile ecosystem.
Each photo is this book will make the reader see how diverse we are, as a country, in wildlife. The finesse of each and every photograph tells about the photographer’s dedication to getting the perfect click. Some pictures of certain animals would really make the readers think that if these species even exist in India. Did you know that there is some species called the wild dogs? I did not. But there is. The book is like a tour in the forests and wildlife reserves.
Every photograph is a story in itself. The author has made little notes with every picture, telling the tale of the endangered species and why they need to be preserved in the home that they deserve.
One can never get bored of looking at the beautiful pictures this book has to share.
