Dear Elantra, Aquarian and Majic, thanks for your replies.

I will be posting my collection of photos of wild animals, reptiles and birds, later today. I hope everyone will like them!

@Majic, yes, clouds have always fascinated me. But the pics I took in Bhutan are not of clouds! It is dense fog!! We got a one-in-a-million chance to photograph that scene!

Our driver, who was a forty year old veteran, had not seen such a scene, during all his driving career spanning over 20 years!

Default The reptile world!

Team, here is my next set of pics. These pics were taken in Pune zoo. I was still learning the art of digital photography with my brand new DSLR, when I took these pics! So please bear with me, if the quality is not upto the mark! I hope everyone will like these pics!

Why is that tortoise staring at you like that. Was he posing for you to take the snap or was he annoyed ?

Thanks, Majic. I am still a rookie, learning the finer points of photography! To tell you the fact, there is not a single day that passes by without my learning something new about photography!

By the time I become good enough to compete with Animal Planet's photographers, I will most probably be a great grandpa!

Thanks Aquarian. The King Cobra's cage was built in a big dark room, with just one tubelight. These pics were taken without a flash at 1600 ISO!

Yes, Sri. More pics coming up! The Iguana was a cutie and posed for me till I got the perfect shot! That Tortoise needs to take a leaf out of the Iguana's book!

Let me add, that all these pics were taken without a flash, to cause no harm to these beautiful animals in any way!

Amazing snap of the turtle showing angry face.
this shows the animals also have emotions and are capable of displaying them.

thanks for sharing C_L

Hey CL, I am not a great fan of repltiles, so I didnt comment on the one that you posted. The photos of tiger is awesome, where did you take that picture. Its seems to be anatural environment and how close did you get to the tiger? You have the magic touch with cameras buddy, even if you take a photo using a N95 you get amazing pictures. Keep it coming.
