17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nature's Necklace

In Bandhavgarh National we drove across a small bridge and there at the edge of a river pond was a watchful little bird looking for its lunch. It dived into the water and emerged with a fish but what I noticed most was the ring of water beads still lying on its breast like natures own necklace.
