It was a year of wildlife for me as a photographer. I had some unexpected wild encounters with the most elusive predator, snow leopard and other iconic mammals and birds. As everyone knows that this year is the most challenging time due to pandemic, so we have the only choice to travel locally in a very limited time and destinations. And the wildlife photography requires enormous patience, excellent timing and great luck which make it the most challenging game too. From the beginning of the year, my wildlife photography adventures had started with challenges and lucky moments, in western region of Mongolia and the other expeditions had followed.
Here I would love to show the beauty of wild animals in realistic and artistic ways. I really appreciate the partners and local friends who helped me to reach the extremely remote places, to observe magnificent rare animals and birds, to capture all of these stunning images that you are seeing. Wild Mongolia 2020 Images would help you to discover Mongolia's wild side.

And the other carefully selected wildlife images which are taken in my past several years, will be presented on my "Snow Leopard" photography coffee-table-book.
