    I am more of a bird expert and naturalist than wildlife photographer. You have rightly picked up Sagar, Chungba, Bikash and Om, but there are few more hidden gems. I must say that it is pity to miss Umang and Utsab Jung Thapa, Mannshant Ghimire and Sanjay Tha Shrestha. You have commendable work to promote Nepalese wildlife photographers.
