The photos of the forests have an ethereal other wordly quality about them. My personal favorite is the first introductory photo.
You may not have sighted the big cats but you have certainly done justice to the other flora and fauna of the place.
What a treat!
Thank you. As I mentioned, I was trying to see things with a different eye during this trip. Usually my whole attention is focused on chasing big cats

Thanks. Scraped elbows and ruined my tshirt to slither and get close to the rabbit. It is Nilanjan, by the way.

I saw the Monkey peeing picture and was reading the details about that photo. As soon as I scrolled down, I saw that dew on the straw picture. Immediately I thought that the pee had fallen on some straw and you had captured it 'pee'utifully
Aha. No artistic subliminal message or conceptual continuity intended, all in the eyes of the beholder :-)

A few more photos. Haven't been able to work on them, been busy watching King Kohli and magical Ashwin give the whining and arrogant English what they deserved to get.

Awesome is the only word to describe your pictures, my favorite being the black and white shot of the Rhino and the Rabbit. Surprised by a lone Elephant on a foggy day on a narrow road is a thought that haunts me always during the forest drives.

You have some excellent shots going there. The BnW rhynosaucerous looks gracious. The perspective and pov of every image is just excellent. The train tracks give the chills . Simpley loved the narration . Rated 5*

Thanks. It was a foggy night, not day, so a little more interesting :-)

Roadblock. We had to go through the undergrowth on the left and regain the track on the far side of the tree.

Fantastic images & lovely projection of what mother nature offers. Very difficult to choose or say which image I liked the most as all are too good. Going to rate this thread a well deserved 5 stars.

A couple of questions now

I understand FRH is the way to go when comes to staying in Dudhwa. But are there other VFM accomodation options available on the fringes of the park? Can safaris be booked online? Are there multiple entry points for safaris like how we have in Tadoba, Bandhavgarh etc?

Thanks. There are quite a few accommodation options outside the park, just Google or check on Tripadvisor. I don't think that other budget options are too good, but mid and upper range places should be quite good (going by reviews).

There are various zones e.g. Sathiana, Kishanpur etc., and the gate for each zone is different. One should visit all the zones if possible.

Not sure re safaris, since this time someone else took care of logistics. Best to call the UP Ecotourism department or any of the resorts, and check.

Dawn, B&W. Had shared this in the non-auto image thread.
