Arrival of Monsoon


JArrival1Yuwaraj Gurjar is an ace photographer and avid nature lover. The SGNP that spreads across 104 sq. km is a home to many big and small, wonderful creatures. Yuwaraj has been visiting this park almost every weekend, for the last 29 years, and is still in awe with its beauty. While on his birding trips to the national park, Yuwaraj started admiring the lesser fauna which is very unusual, fascinating and goes unnoticed most of the time. He started observing and photographing butterflies, ants, bugs, beetles, dragonflies, other small insects and wild flowers.
