Wildlife and me

I grew up watching Discovery, National Geographic and Animal planet channels. I was a religious follower of the wildlife documentaries on these channels and wished to be an explorer myself someday. Of course, it was just a childhood fantasy. Nevertheless, India still has a lot of wildlife and some of the most enchanting jungles and gives enough of opportunity to see a very diverse and rich wildlife closely. I haven’t got a chance to explore much yet as the journey has just begun.

Here are some of my wildlife shots from visits to Ranthambhor, Gir, Mudumalai, Periyar national parks, Pobitora and some other random places. The joy of getting a good shot of a wild creature is indescribable and so is the pain of not spotting a tiger! Yep, I am yet to spot a tiger in all it’s glory! Till then, I will console myself by looking at the below pictures πŸ™‚
