Suresh Elamon 

Suresh Elamon always dreamt of being a naturalist and a wildlife photographer. Popularly known as the 'Bird & Butterfly man of Kerala'  he has been studying and photographing birds, butterflies, wildlife and the spectacular beauty of Kerala's forests right from a very young age. His photographs and articles have appeared in numerous national and international journals. His survey of the butterflies of the Periyar Tiger Reserve resulted in the rediscovery of the legendary Travencore Evening Brown butterfly which was thought to be extinct for several decades.

"Forests have always fascinated me." says Suresh. "There is nothing I enjoy than being in the depths of the deepest evergreen  forests of Kerala."

A life member of the Bombay Natural History Society and a trustee of Nature Trust, Trivandrum, he has collaborated with the BBC in the making of   wildlife films.

He now lives at Trivandrum with his wife Nirmala and children Swathee and Sudeep.        .
