Congrats Sourab , on your luck smiling all the way on your holiday. Nice travelogue to read , Very few photographers of Nat geo or Discovery channel get a chance to photograph a crocodile eating an erget . Elephants giving you a treat for 20 mins on road , a sloth bear which is now on the list of endangered speices. What camera and lens were you using while clicking the crocodile attack and details of your camers settings ?

I've been to forests, and not seen such a variety as yet in a single trip. This was indeed a dream trip for a photographer, rather, any wildlife lover.

These pictures had much more impact than the NG ones. The NG ones are planned, huge time and effort spent, and the viewers know what is coming. This was completely unexpected, unprepared, with the constraints of the boat, and yet, the photography has been excellent.
Thanks Samm. We were indeed very very lucky.

Thanks drbones for your appreciation.

I was using a Nikon D80 with a 70-300mm ED lens (non VR). Settings used were: F/14; 1/640sec; ISO 400; shot at approx 200mm.

I guess that's one of the best tele-lenses from Nikon (other than the fixed aperture models), especially the VR model. You must be having great fun with this D80-300mm combo!

Thanks Sourabh for the travelogue and sharing the experience and moments. Any idea about the cost of lodging?

Have been using this combo for the last 5 years now. Has never let me down.

Amazing photography and presence of mind!! A chill ran down my spine seeing the crocodile and ibis shots.

Hi Saurabh

Very nicely written travelogue with plenty of amazing pics. You sure do have a talent for wildlife photography. I especially liked the ones of the croc and the ibis. Thanks for sharing and keep posting.
cheers

Lovely photographs. Bad croc! Didn't quite understand the entry restrictions into the forest reserve - obviously you can get there by a private car instead of a government safari, right? Or, is the route covered by private vehicles different from the one by safari? Thanks for your narrative once again.
