There is literally nobody in this world who would hate to see photos of wildlife. Dolph Volker who works as a volunteer at the Cheetah Experience in South Africa has been the talk of the town for his recent picture with Cheetah which is doing the rounds on social media.
The non-profit organisation which he works is the home of endangered and threatened species like cheetahs, leopards, male non-breeding lions, servals, caracals, African wildcats, wolves, meerkats, and a Siberian tiger.
After his dog died, this wildlife photographer and zoologist was heartbroken. This incident completely changed his life and he made up his mind to do his best to fight for animal rights and increase awareness for endangered species.
In his vacation days, he would turn up to volunteer at the Cheetah Experience.
Dolph was tired after a long day in the sun and so he decided to take a nap under a tree. It was when a cheetah named Eden saw him, walked up to him and what happened next is really thrilling. The cheetah initially sniffed him and decided to cuddle with him!
When Dolph had opened his eyes, he was speechless and a new friendship started to bloom.
Dolph spends most of his good time in the company of cheetahs. He is also known as “The Cheetah Whisperer.”
Everybody showers love towards photography as they just love clicking cool pictures or being involved in the complete frame so much so that it becomes a part of a sweet memory for them to relish, remember and rejoice the moment when they just look into the picture.
10-year-old boy clicks ‘candid picture’ to win Wildlife Photographer Award
Creativity is the potential to bring something new into existence and Arshdeep Singh has got more of it in his kitty. At an age where children are busy clicking selfies, the 10-year-old Arshdeep Singh from Jalandhar shot into prominence for winning one of wildlife photography’s topmost awards in the world. It’s indeed a great achievement.
Yes, Arshdeep is the winner of the 2018 Wildlife Photographer of the Year award in the 10-years-and-under category. His penchant for photography has taken him to a whole new level. Capturing a candid photo doesn’t necessarily require a picturesque location but an impeccable idea that transforms the thinking into a scenic beauty.
They say, ‘you don’t need eyes to see, you need vision’. Arshdeep nailed it. This indeed sums up the essential Arshdeep for you!. He has carved out a unique identity for himself as the best photographer.
His picture, ‘Pipe Owls’ was awarded the best in the category by Britain’s Natural History Museum which hands over the annual award. The elated Arshdeep said that the photo was captured just outside Kapurthala, in Punjab.
“I saw the owls fly in the tube and I told my dad. He said that’s not possible, but he stopped the car. We had to wait 20 or 30 minutes until they came out again, and then I took the picture,” he was quoted as saying by BBC.
“After his keen observational skills helped him see these spotted owlets Arshdeep waited patiently for the birds to peep out from their hiding place to get this winning shot,” the organizers noted.
