Glimpses in the wild

 Leopards in the Mara, the reigning tigress in Bandhavgarh, a fantail in Singapore or a deer or cormorant in Bharatpur. Pinaki Ray presents us a whimsy of wonderful images in his photo story.

Choti tara – the beautiful tigress of Bandhavgarh mukki zone. She was lying in the water in a pond nestled with the ground and only the flick of her tail gave away her position to our guide. After that small movement, she made us   wait with baited breath for almost 40 minutes until she decided to give us a look and raised her head. I think she thought she was well hidden and was surprised when she saw us still waiting for her .

Cormorant sihouette captured in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, on one foggy and cold morning.

A beautiful and feisty fantail one morning in “Gardens by the Bay” in Singapore. She was sitting on the dried  lotus flower giving me a nice contrast and color.

Kaboso, the leopard, walking down to her baby after she hunted down a wildebeest on the banks of the Mara river . She killed with grace and feline expertise and after hiding her kill she walked down to fetch her Cub as he was hungry.

Deer in tunnel on a foggy morning in Bharatpur. We were waiting at this spot for a long time waiting for a deer or a fox to appear. Sure enough, the deer came and stood there giving us a painting. A beautiful morning indeed!

    I have been hearing about your wildlife photography for so long but after seeing these lovely pictures I realized passionate you are about photography. All these pictures capture the mesmerizing effects of the forests; something I haven’t really experienced personally. The last one ‘deer in tunnel’ is my Favourite and I feel that it really embraces the theme of ‘wildlife’.
