Fantastic photography Sir. Of course, with 100-400 lens, it is naturally expected (read wildlife photography). The pics are eye treat to watch.

I loved the Panorama very much. Seems you are the king of panoramas. I have seen your panoramas of Nallamala forest too. Thanks a lot for sharing the pics and trip

The break failure event is scary.

Ravi,
Thank you and yes the 100-400, well without it the reach would not be possible at all neither the quality, It is my lifeline see how I clutch it in all conditions, like a baby is held by its mother, notice in the jungle and bird sanctuary the drizzle which was most irritating for me and poison for the equipment. No complaints it was not a studio shoot anyways.
The brake failure was not as scary in reality as it was detected early and we always have Devidas who is very experienced and does not take chances, and Thanks for the title too.

Ravveendrra,
Thankyou, it was definetely a wonderful trip, the pure scent of the forest is enough to take you on a high and the oxygen levels ensure that you do not tire out.

Shams,
Thankyou again, I hope there are many more who would walk the wildlife side, As you are aware this is the last of what we are seeing and our rapidly dwindling wildlife scenario is overlooked by the ones who can and could make a difference.

Best Regards,

...in continuation,

In a high state of alert, as there was an alarm call from the right direction about 1 kilometer away. Deers prefer to be in open areas where they can have better visibility of danger from afar and like to be in the company of Langur's (as it has the advantage of a ariel view of the forest, Langur is an alert sentry and has the capability of an early warning system in case of any predatory ambush).

Serene, when relaxed.

Gaur bull, it stands 6 feet at shoulder.

A brief halt in the forest.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-halt.jpg
The endless lush green forest, envisage what it will be at the end of the monsoon season.

Use your imagination.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-imagine.jpg
Open billed stork, chick. the incessant drizzle was bad for the equipment, also we were constrained to shoot at low shutter speeds due to low light conditions at the bird sanctuary.

NIP,
Surely it was the wrong time of the year, we took our chances as monsoons were delayed in this part of South, but were late by just two days, as we were monitoring the weather there before we left Hyderabad at very regular intervals. Except for the Tiger and Panther, and of course the Nagarhole elephants which were on their migration to Madumalai forest, we more or less sighted a good number of species beyond our expectations considering the change in weather and new forest cover.

Simply fabulous. Super crisp photography. The pictures were like taking me throught the journey itself. A very rare photologue with such good wildlife photos on this forum.
When does the park open next?... after the monsoon..?

Thanks for sharing.
Cheers,

J

J,
Sharing the experience in pictures and text wit you guys on the forum was my pleasure. Thank you and all for your kind comments.
The park opens in December, but the best chance of Tiger sighting is from April-May, that is when we plan to be there again.

Fazal, i am surprised that i missed seeing this travelogue. But as they say better late than never. You love for the wildlife is truly salutable. Amazing photography and the animals are standing out in those lush green background.

I am sure you must have got totally rejevunated and oxygenated after this trip. Look forward to more pictures which seems to be the popular demand on this thread.

....in continuation,

Directions from there to here and here to there.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-board.jpg
Another view of our Nagarahole forest bunglow, notice the felled trees in the foreground are the work of tuskers, done much earlier.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-guesthouse.jpg
View from standing position in the Gypsy .
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-into-forest.jpg
White Ibis in flight.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-ibis-flight.jpg
Gaur head, blur is due to the head movement.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-bull-head.jpg
Basking Croc, in bird park.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-basking-croc.jpg
Sambars, semi-alert. I noticed that Sambar's here are different from their species elsewhere in appearance, the ones here have a soft, short and dark brown coat as compared to lighter, longer and coarser coat of their species in India.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-sambars.jpg
This is the same view of the waterhole from machan #1 (posted earlier) shot at wide angle from a different camera. Notice there's no rain at this time.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-waterhole-wide.jpg
Parked in the shadows of a bamboo grove, we were so quiet that whispers too are a give away, hand signals are used to communicate with each other. This pair of fawns totally oblivious to our presence stroll along.
Hyd-Bandipur-Madumalai-Nagarhole-youngsters.jpg
Shot from machan #1, just below four females drink the freshly collected rain water, again our presence totally undetected.
