Ultimate pictures dude ... You are lucky that it rained. After rain its heaven in nature, specially in Jungle IMO. The big cat photos (Leopard) are really great !!!

Vinay, great pictures of the mammoths & that of leopards. That elusive & extremely shy cat went on posing for you; lucky.

Are there any more pictures? Kabini, Bandipur, Nagarhole & Mudumalai are in my cross-hairs for quite sometime. When, is a big question..

Leopard was around 50-75m from our jeep. There were lot of bushes & tree around but luckily our jeep driver stopped it right in front of a small opening which was sufficient to reach with my 100-400mm.

when can one expect elephant's congregation @ Kabini? Is it starting April or May? I am planning to visit Kabini to witness the same.
