Default Magnificent Pench !

Dear friends, got back late night from Pench National Park.

The biggest cat sighted there was this Jungle cat, so don't expect any tigers on this thread.

The beauty of this forest was what I wanted to capture apart from other resident wildlife, I did my best.
A teaser.

My first impression looking at the title was.. "Wow another tiger thread".
Never mind!!! The jungle has more than just Tigers to offer.

Awaiting more..

Sir,
Wow you got the most elusive cat of the jungles.
It will be really nice to see in your photgraphs the beauty of the jungle which is often overlooked in search of the tiger.

Another thread from one of my fav TBHPians, Fazal Saab. Dying to see more of your Pench'anting Photos. A lovely shot of the elusive Jungle Cat there. Would love to see more from your side. The teasers have teased for long, its time to unleash the Pench'astic Fury of Pench.

That jungle cat looks like a real mean fella! Just how ferocious are they? Can one of them take on a Dhole?

And the forest pic is so inviting to take a walk into the unknown! Looking forward for more of such vistas.

Vinay,
The gear in use was a 20D and 5D mk II body and lenses switched on them as required, were a non L, non IS 300 mm borrowed from Dr. Ghosh and a 50mm prime.
Lord,
The jungle cat just cannot match up to the Dhole.
Forest scapes.

The richness of the blue and the rusticness of the brown have made these forest scapes really awesome and wall paper material.

Fazal Saab, do we see something among these pictures for the next year's Nat Geo Competition?
