Leopard after sunset at bera

Leopard after sunset at Bera

Photographed this beautiful mother leopard at bera just after sunset. She was sitting there alone in the fading twilight. With light so little was not very promising but still I had to shoot this beauty, my nikon d4s pushed to iso 25000. (there was a time when I would fear shooting a ISO 400 film). I shot until i could not focus any more. This is one of the best shot in natural light I got before it was too […]

Leopard shooting with Nikon1 v3 and FT1 Adaptor

Leopard shooting with Nikon1 V3 and FT1 Adaptor + Nikkor 200400vr + 1.4x +beanbag in Bera. The small sensor gives 2.7x magnification with a Nikkor 35 mm lens so the effective focal length of 1450 mm is quite helpful in some situations. I also cropped the image about 20%.

Being the only vehicle for about a minute […]

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.

Leopard Stalking in Pench

Leopard Stalking in Pench N.P.

Leopards are very elusive and I find them to be the most beautiful of the big cats. After searching for them in Pench National Park, India for 2 days, found this young one for just a few moments while it was stalking. It was in sight for only a few seconds and disappeared into the forest after a few clicks.
