Yo Doc, why/when do Tigers bang their tails?

AFAIK, before charging. Elephants move their head/trunk from side to side when they are about to do the same thing.

Rainfall of Leopards in Pench over the last few rounds apart from the regular ladies with their cubs. Good shots of Badi maa cubs crossing road finally. Hoping for 1 last hurrah tomorrow morning....

Congratulations. Both as naturalist and photographer, I'm sure you are rightly rated as a professional.

Season 2010-2011 is fast coming to an end here in Pench with the park closing down for monsoons from 30 june (next wednesday) but Tiger sightings and unique experiences continue unabated for me. Last week i made 2 visits to the park with excellent sightings of Badi maa cubs and missing a bold shahrukh (collarwali cub) by a whisker; apart from getting a new male in pyorthadi. I will post the final pics of this season sometime next week and i or someone on my behalf will visit the park on the very lasy day of the season. Next 3 months will see me visiting Tadoba more often if it remains open. So long then for now. Watch this thread for some interesting activity over the next few weeks as I will post my very last images of this season.

Regards,
Dr. A Ghosh

These set of pics are by a very senior wildlifer Mr. Nikhilesh Trivedi who recently visited Pench and booked an elephant all to himself to have a private viewing of the cubs.

In his words: I was fortunate to be there to see this memorable sighting. I have taken this type of shots (mother with cubs in the tank) after very long waiting. i am visiting Tiger reserves since the year 1988 for such an encounter and now after a wait of more than 20 years, I have had such shots.

The 5 babies are doing good and the department along with the help of individuals like us are continuing their monitoring. I thought of updating this interesting sighting for the benefit of everybody.

P.S: I am planning to organize a medical camp for the forest department workers of Pench very soon. And also distribute some solar lamps to some of the far flung forest chowkis.

Dr. Ghosh,

Great work !

Been too caught with building my Jeep then driving to AKC and EXAMM, enjoyed the event and now back trying to bridge the work back log.

Very nice photographs of the family in the water. Nice to know all 5 are doing good. Keep up the good work.

Regards,
