Hi Redrage.. The pics were just amazing, and its also suprising how many birds you were able to spot. Also agree to your view about Jungle lodges bandipur, the three hour jeep safari that they take itslelf is our rent amount well spent.

L glass pics are simply superb! Its worth the $$ spent
I guess it maybe due to over saturation of colors. I will repost.

Lovely photos.. The birds in particular are beautiful! Nothing compared to what I could capture of birds in my recent trip to BR Hills! Please do check it out and let me know if I can better those bird snaps in any possible way. Its in my travelogue called "Wildlife Beckons".

BTW I use a 70-300 mm lens unlike your 400 mm.

Hmm. They say in Birding sometimes even 800mm is not sufficient. Approach also matters a lot. If you don't make hasty advances or hurry into taking a photograph, then you could do wonders provided you compose well in the field.

I used to use a 55-250 before and i got some fairly ok shots even when the subject was far away. But correcting my approach to these subjects yielded better results.

Had a repeat adventure of the same location few weeks back and boy the places haven't lost a bit of their charm, the cottages in JLR have become a little more cosy and Palaniappa is very much a nature lovers paradise!

This was a very special trip for me as i got married this January and was the first trip with my wife and parents to these places,

Some pictures from the enchanting forests of Bandipur

We had one thing on mind when we went to the Safari, we had to see a cat. Having missed out so many close encounters in Bandipur, this was a must see thing for us and my better half, the nature lover that she is was craving to see one so badly. And boy were we rewarded! And quite handsomely ...

Some really sharp late evening lookout gave us a darshan of a handsome old male

He seem to be injured on the neck looked like a territory fight or a struggle while bringing down a chital stag

Very rarely does a leopard take an open path and walk it without concern. Well this one did that & more, marking its territory like a tiger and looking us in the eye. One brave fellow this one.

Redrage,

Awesome clicks and wonderful views. The leopard looks majestic and am sure you are rewarded with more than what you had hope for.

This increases my quest to get backup Bandipur again soon and be inside the forest and search for these beauties. Hope I do get a reward.
