10-year-old Arshdeep Singh from Jalandhar has made the entire nation proud after he won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award for his photograph titled, ‘Pipe Owls’, in a contest organised by Britain’s Natural History Museum.

After winning the award, Arshdeep took to his Facebook handle to share a message with his followers. He wrote: “I would like to thank my family because without their support this wasn’t really possible. Thank you for motivating and supporting me. Special thanks to my grandparents, parents and my sister.”
The ‘wonder kid’ started taking photos at the age of six and his photographs had published in leading magazines and newspapers in India and abroad.
Arshdeep’s Facebook page is full of some stunning pictures he captured in his lens.
