Glimpses in the wild

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 .

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.

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!
