Great Penchscapes !
Its indeed heartening to see 3 active travelogues on Pench trying to vie for the top slot in terms of habitat depiction.

Keep up the good work.

Coooolcat21,

I meant the binoculars in your son's hand, is that a 10X50?

The spotted deer's relationship with the tree pie in your photographs is give and take, as the tree pie feeds on the parasites on the it.

This is a highly ferocious bird, an able bird of prey/ predator.
This long shot (cropped) is from last 2010, Tadoba. Please allow me to post this photograph on your thread to demonstrate its capability.

Regards,

The predator and its prey, equal to its size.

Sir,
Thank you so much.
Impossible for me to be coming anywhere close to the running logs by you and Fazal Ali Sir. You both are inspiration to our logs , and making us look at the jungles in a new light.
Regards

Thank you for posting the picture it adds a lot more information on this thread.

For how long we will be able to see Pench...?

Too much is never enough...
Watching all 4 threads makes me feel as if I was never @ Pench and had to visit it soon... Mid May it would be :-)

With happiness we move on to see the treasures the jungle holds within.
When we see closely its the habitat that makes these animals look so beautiful.

Superb captures. This time you have improved a lot in taking pictures. Superb sharp, crisp. Nice feel of Pench. Waiting the 'D' day to come.

You and Fazal keep talking of the 'D' day or the 'Storm'. Do you guys know something we don't? Is this something as exotic as a faceoff between Coooolcat and a tigress? Curious

Your son is lucky to have parents who are exposing him to such beauty from early on. It will affect him deeply and make him richer for that.

Coooolcat21,
How dare I attempt to that?

From your very first log it was evident that you can put in words what most of us struggle with. Your passion shows in your write ups and the art of building the plateau in a log, I am trying to learn this from you.

The photographs of the waterholes, rock wedged trees and the heron are classy, great composition.

Now I am wondering, how did I miss the ghosts on the rocks in Pench (1st pic.in post #23)? That goes to show nature is so vast, one trip or one lifetime just isn't enough.

The early exposure your handsome son is getting could one day pay dividends and he may help conserve the forest and wildlife in his generation, in more active ways.

Winds are getting stronger and louder, Deepak.
Regards,

I must say I am enjoying the non tiger pictures more because really the forest is actually as much, if not more, exotic than the striped cat.

Now that we had well observed how the stones were in the bright white clutches of the ghost, was time to look up and see the brave hearts who resided in its branches and around.

But ofcourse the silver white coated Langoors

Agreed fully! Many a times, my friends asked me, why are you visiting the same place 10 times. Jungle is same and the route is same.....I just gave them a smile and ignore.

Sir, it shows that how much you are into nature and wildlife.

Nice captures of Pench. Liked the most: Baby langoor peeping (Accurately focus), eye contact with Jackle and beautiful landscapes. Though the male spotted deer is sharp but you cut the horns. Could have been a great frame. This time pictures are really perfect.
