Pratik, from nearby Ahmedabad, said: “During the month of July, the park is closed for visitors and the whole day was spent near the road and by the side of the Green fields in search of a bird called the Lesser Florican.

“When I took the shot, the antelopes were passing from one side of the road to the other.”

The photographer added: “Meanwhile, a bike rider just passed, and it looked as if the blackbucks were jumping in such a way over the bike.

“The photo looks as if they are informing us that this jungle is ours, so please stay away from it and give us a path to cross the road.

“This photo was caught by me after lot of efforts and various attempts, before getting the best one!”
