Tiger Matkasur Tadoba

Matkasur – Tiger King

Matkasur is the name of this handsome young tiger from Tadoba. I was awestruck the first time I saw him. Sitting just in front of another vehicle ahead of mine. The light was beautiful and this animal was handsome beyond doubt. The vehicle in front of me was positioned such that i could only shoot a close portrait although I would have also loved to shoot the background which was beautiful. Any way those who have gone on safari know […]

Tiger cubs of t39 Noor Ranthambore

3-4 month old cubs from Ranthambore tigress Noor (T39). Even at 1600 ISO I was not getting enough shutter speed to freeze this young one speeding towards my camera. Not as sharp as I would prefer it still is one of my favourite. Photographed using nikon d800 + nikkor 200-400 vr on bean bag.

Tiger Kanha

Tiger from Kanha

Photographed this handsome male tiger on the last morning safari at kanha national park. We managed to get in front of him as soon as we got the chance when he entered the foliage for a few moments. From there on he walked following our vehicle for nearly 10 minutes, sometimes getting real close. A tiger walking close is always a treat especially when facing you. It is increased many folds when its a handsome male tiger as the difference […]

Photographed this Young Male about 4 yrs old known as the katejari male in Tadoba (TATR) 2 days ago on the afternoon safari. We heard the call saw it crossing the fireline (gaps in forest made to stop forest fires) he is known to use the same path so we knew he will come near the water hole so we waited and after some time there he was. he gently walked on the stones and touched the water gently to […]

Munna male tiger of kanha

Male tiger of Kanha

A male tiger walking in open meadows is a wildlife photographers delight. A male tiger walking straight towards you even for a few seconds exceeds that delight.  I had just such a sighting when i was recently on my wildlife photo tour of kanha. This tiger was there just for a few seconds literally and moved again to the meadow on the right. With all the other vehicles moving around, my own vehicle reversing, its easy to mess this. Some […]

Tiger cub playing with camera trap

Yesterday on our safari of Wildlife photo tours at bandhavgarh, we spotted tigress called kankatti with her 3 cubs who are just 4-5 months old. It was a fantastic experience to see small one playing and one of them in the above image just took out the camera trap while playing with it. I am sure the camera trap took some nice jaw pics of the cub. Posting from bandhavgarh between safaris cheers 🙂

Legendary Tiger B2 Dead

B2 the legendary tiger who dominated bandhavgarh forest for more than a decade is Dead. He was found injured most probably by some tiger near ghunghuti area, chauri village in shahdol district  which is far from bandhavgarh. The forest dept it seems tried saving him by giving treatment, unfortunately his time had come. He may have gone so far away due to the ever present danger of the new male in bandhavgarh who in recent times on many occasions tried […]
