And here’s our third finalist in the Nature India Photo Contest 2019:

Photo caption: Hunger
“The word ‘security’ attains a different meaning when preceded by the word ‘food’. Food security is one of the key issues facing humankind today, especially the developing world. In this picture, a hungry man and a hungry dog look at the same pile of waste for food, bringing to fore the stark reality – when it comes to food, humans and animals seem to follow the same social rules.This photo was taken with a cell phone camera at Howrah, West Bengal, India.” — Biplap Sarkar
