Vinay Amazing is the word after seeing your snaps. You might be a real lucky chap to spot a wild cat in natural.

Wishing you all the best to spot the king at the earliest.

Hey I have a doubt? Are you referring to the Kanha jungle of MP ? I totally got confused, because the thread says Kabini.

Or is there jungle by name Kanha near Nagarhole?

Anyway the snaps are terrific, where ever they have been taken.

Thanks Ampere & REMU for appreciating my pics. Few more will follow soon.

Regarding confusion I created, I am sorry for that. Pictures are taken in Kanha in MP, no Kanha near Nagarhole . Went to meet Mr. Tiger all the way to central India but had only two meetings. Tiger/Tigress were pretty busy this April

Don't want to open a new thread as there are 2 threads with fantastic pictures on Kanha already running in the forum. But what is the way to change the thread title.

Vinay, You need to use the report post functionality to get in touch with mods for the title update.

Hey Vinay,
I should say Kalyan's Photos are stunning, mesmerizing you guys are gifted. I some how or the other just remember Madhavan role in 3idiots after seeing him, do what you like and do it to the fullest .

Awesome pics, thanks for sharing.

Kalyan Varma is an amazing guy. I ran in to his website months back. It's a great opportunity for you to have met up with him, rather joined him on this.

And your photos are amazing! Go searching for a needle in a haystack and what does one find there? A GAUR!

No, we don't. But we have a SmartCat in our forum and he is typically associated with captions such as these!

Kalyan comes later. I have not seen that website yet. Your own snaps are amazing. You guys are really gifted. All I work with is a humble point and shoot and a simple camcorder.

More than the equipment, one needs any eye for detail that can be captured. Your sunset snap made my day. Too Good !

Ampere. Take a look at Kalyan Varma's website. Not just his snaps, he's in to something really great. Something which people like me can only aspire and sigh (loudly).
Not taking credit away from these guys, but Kalyan Varma is in a different league altogether!

Never meant to say anything against Kalyan. Got bowled over by the snaps posted on this thread itself! Hence the comment.

But yes these guys ARE: League of Extra Ordinary.

Hi Friends,
Thanks for appreciating my photographs.

Actually the trip included Kanha & Bandhavgarh but I joined only for Kanha. And just to tell you what I missed when the team continued to Bandhavgarh.
First day, first safari in Bandhavgarh - 14 Tigers with 2 tigers going for hunts. I really missed it. Now, I can only crib that I should have continued to Bandhavgarh.
I have seen those pictures taken by the team and above pictures are nothing. I really missed the best moments I was striving for so long.
But the best I liked is the way Kanha National Park is managed. You cannot compare Nagarhole with it. You cannot find a single plastic bag inside the jungle. All staff working there including the safari drivers & guides are very disciplined inside jungle.
I AM IMPRESSED.


@ranjith.rajaram - He has few kits but for the Kanha trip, he used Nikkon 700D + 200-400mm.
