Photographed this tigress in kanha meadows. She crossed in front between the vehicles without diverting her path, while crossing she snarled casually at the vehicle in front.

He was found injured most probably by some tiger near ghunghuti area, chauri village in shahdol district  which is far from bandhavgarh.

Tigress Closeup from kanha

After lot of cheetal and langur alarms calls and few distant glimpses for about an hour, I decided to wait near a jungle trail frequently used by tigers and other animals where we thought she would come out from. There was silence for about 15 mins and the wait to get a close look was nearing the end of our safari time. We thought she had settled down and would not come out but just as we were loosing hope […]

Rajbehra Tigress in water

This was shot recently in bandhavgarh on 31 March 2011. Every time I passed this place I wondered how beautiful it would be if a tiger is near or in that water. One evening it just happened we followed the rajbehra tigress as it crossed in front of our vehicle and then went straight towards the lake. The evening light was perfect, the water still, the green sal reflection in the water created a magical atmosphere, it was magical we just […]

Wildlife Photography Tour, Kanha in January 2011. My First Wildlife Photo Tour of the year 2011 to Kanha was a success for me and my group and with sightings of almost all the mammals of kanha and a variety of birds and rare animal behavior. We were lucky to see so many animals as temp had dropped to almost -6 deg celcius(a record low for kanha) a few days before and sightings were very less. When I was there the […]

B2 and the Langur

Tiger and the langur

Here a langur monkey sits near the entrance of a cave where the dominant male tiger of bandhavgarh sleeps. The langur was so curious that initial it would get close and after a glance run away, after a while he was sure the tiger is asleep and sat nearby. Curiosity is not just found in humans. It was a amazing moment to watch this guy.

With more than 20 vehicles lined to photograph this tiger cub including the BBC team, I somehow managed to get space for my vehicle but with a tree right in front. Fortunately after some time this guy came and sat just behind that tree. At first I could’nt get a shot but then he started peeping at the vehicles curiously, one such moment is capture in this shot. After sometime he finally came out and sat waiting for his brother […]
