The young cub who was running around, turned to nudge his mother when she growled. The back lighting made this image very interesting. It gave the rim light effect on both the lioness and the cub. Picture clicked at Maasai Mara game reserve.

This was also taken in Masai Mara. We were following a mother and her two sub-adult cubs through the savannah as they tried to hunt unsuccessfully then rested and walked and walked till we came upon a herd of Impala grazing in some tall grass. We were the only vehicle there and positioned ourselves. After a wait for more than an hour, all hell broke loose and this mother Cheetah took down this female Impala right in front of us.
In this picture, one of the five brothers Cheetah coalition of Masai Mara tries to corner a Wildebeest into a trap. However, it is still not time for this brave Wildebeest who turns around and attacks these Cheetahs and chases them away.
I made this image on 31st of March 2018 at Masai Mara national reserve, Kenya. I have been following the big cats from quite long time and it’s so nice to see different behavior of these magnificent felines. In this image the lion and lioness were on the hunting mode to feed their pride but the lion kept on stationing at several places and this really annoyed the lioness and thus that the expression. This was very new to me as I thought only humans show these expressions/annoyed (Man vs Woman) but was amazed to see and document the animal behavior. How we ( Humans ) take care of our family in the same way the lions/Animals also take care of their pride, said that When it comes to animal behavior, never say never. In fact, most people who spend a lot of time in the bush continuously witness behavior that is believed not to happen or has never been recorded. The reality is that animals act of their own free will, and don’t always follow the rules of textbooks. What many people believe about animal behavior could be the result of witnessing limited examples of a particular situation. Did I say that Male lion is Lazy? No they are not lazy actually male lions have a reputation for being lazy, but that is far from the truth. A male’s job is critical to the protection of his pride. Male lions patrol the territory where the pride lives, and will fight to protect it. They travel vast distances to patrol their territory, by scent marking and vocalizing, to ensure other lions who may be a threat, stay away. It is critical for male lions to keep out other males, because if another male or coalition comes to dominate, they will kill all the cubs to keep from expending energy on raising cubs that are not their own offspring. I hope you like my small write up and the image.
A kambala is an annual buffalo race held in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka. Traditionally, it is sponsored by local Tuluva landlords and households in the coastal districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi, a region collectively known as Tulu Nadu.
These beautiful blue tailed bee eaters were picking up their prey and finding the perch to get perched , toss the prey adjust it then feed on. I was waiting for this moment to freeze the action of this beauty spreading its wings while perching that too with prey in its beak.
Juvenal River Tern trying hard to swallow a fish. Adult River Tern, when returns with a fish, generally wash it and make it wet so that the chicks and juvenal can swallow it easily. In this case, as the Juvenal too more time, the fish started to get dry and making it hard to swallow
Where are we living today, what's gonna be our future? A real scene of modern Indian city Bangalore. A scene of Bangalore Drought 2017. Urbanization developed too fast in this city since last 5 years. Real estate industry growth and construction higher storage building is causing the drought. Water level goes down day by day since last 5 years. This is one of the scenic lake is situated almost in the heart of the city. Not only here many other reservoirs and lakes are drying out these days. Construction took place where tree cut, land digging, site planning which cause less rain, drastic climate change. The city is going to face the same as reflect in series of photograph if we can imagine coming days without water.
Has it ever happened to you that something that you thought is going to spoil your picture actually made it one of the best. I travelled to Delhi for work a couple of days back. Thought to make use of early morning and went to see the Humayun's tomb. With a lot of fog around was a bit disappointed that I won't be able to capture the true colors of the Humayun's Tomb and then this happened. Realized that the magic is in its structure and not in its colour.
I absolutely liked how simple this frame is, without wasting any time I captured it on my camera till the end of times. The man sitting on the bench was like icing on the cake. The tree stood out from the rest of the elements in the picture.
Cubs day out, Is this handsome a show stealer ? Yes I believe. He's one among the bold cubs of the elusive female of Central India.
An 18 month old cub who's turned out to be extremely handsome and eye soothing when it comes to his glorious avatar. He was so calm and quite but those stares can portray how a glorious future is lying ahead of him & his journey. He's got all what it requires to be a stern, stiff and future warrior.
Wildlife is totally engaging as usual, and every living being would reflect us back with emotions and expression when surrounded by a situation. It's the same with every natural behaviour. Just look in to those eyes and get hold of that priceless stare, A natural act which compromises every emotional aspect.
Patience does matter a lot, in fact it has to be the key feature in every photographer who wished to explore wildlife and get it executed well. It's not a condition or suggestion rather a must have skill to over come al sort of mental asylum you will be going through during the course period of exclusive sighting. Staying calm and remaining still alone with pinch of patience does reflect back a lot.
Difficulty stage varies between every scenario. Well having the above said qualities on live field can take your visual skills to next level.
After searching for over 2 days for this tigress, one late evening, she walks out. Under the golden light in the open grass, she walks out and gives a majestic pose for all us who were waiting for her. This truly is a dream shot which, for which I've dreamt for many years. This image is one of the few images which truly shows the royal stance of these elusive wild beings and shows us the importance of removing them from their current position of being critically endangered.
