Description : This image is dedicated to Dr Gururaja KV who along with
others found this new species in deep jungles of Katthalekana in 2007, without
whos help I would not have made this image.
It has been for some time I wanted
to understands a bit of black and white photography. I have always been puzzled
- what characteristics of a subject makes it best suited for black and white
photography. Recently I have spent some time trying to understand some science
part of it. Looks like I am getting some clues but long way to go however. Here
in this image I wanted to emphasize the origin of its name - beautiful blue
ring around its eyes - 'Neela' means blue in Sanskrit, and 'Nethra' means eye.
