A Bat that Bowled Us
The Fruit bat was clicked in Negombo,Sri Lanka. The odd one out,Berta deliberately used this image to create a twist. A one of a kind photograph,the bat has its eyes wide open. Berta recalls that many people who saw this photograph,mistook it for a smaller bird at first glance.
These Bee-eaters are from Kunadacs,Hungary. Every year,the country hosts the Birdlife Hungary Bird of the Year Campaign. For 2013,the Bee-eater was chosen as the winning bird and Berta was the photographer for the campaign.
This picture of Ruddy Shelducks in Goa is Bertas favourite image from the series. It is also the only blurry picture,done by a special technique where the camera focuses on one object,while moving to create a hazy effect. In this case,the Shelducks were found near a railway station surrounded by marsh land.
The exhibition is on at the Hungarian Information and Culture Centre till April 20. Contact: 23011152
