The story of the langur...

as we were waiting for a sighting of a leopard during our afternoon safari..we came across a couple of langur's which were pretty far away but their interaction was interesting

Wainting for my beloved!!

Default Survival of the fittest!!

The Cormorant tried hard to somehow swallow the fish but it was too big for it to gulp it down...soon a pelican swooped in, stole the fish and flew away.

Wonderful series of shots. Really liked them. Did you use continuous shooting or what?

Robimahanta: Wonderful pics, the last series and the langur pics were intresting. You were saying the trip got delayed due to various reasons including lack of room availablity at JLR. How early did you have to book to get rooms? Been thinking of JLR Kabai and BR hills for some time hope to put in to action this summer.
