When we look at our photographs and find not the slightest reflection of ourselves, it's a good sign that our images have lost their souls.

The greater adjutant has to be the scariest and largest bird I've ever seen and photographed.

The elegant grey heron, with a catch in its beak.

This was the first time I ever saw a tiger in the wild, and it has to be the best one ever since. The Sariska Tiger Reserve is otherwise infamous for having very few tigers, but you can say I was the luckiest of all the visitors to this magnificent park, and it was just an ordinary case of love at first sight. Since Sariska does not receive many visitors, I expected the tigers and other animals to be very shy and wanting to avoid human presence at all costs, but there she sat, less than 10 meters away from me, eyes locked on me, so calm and composed, showing zero signs of fear, aggression or intimidation. You might think it is a scary experience, but I tell you, nothing can be more humbling than the most lethal predator walking this Earth welcoming you into her comfort zone and allowing you to observe and photograph her from such close quarters. A little over a decade ago, tigers were locally extinct from Sariska, and they had to be relocated from Ranthambore Tiger Reserve a few hundred kilometres away. This was the first successful tiger relocation in India, and the tigress in the photo is the first cub born in Sariska after her parents were moved in from Ranthambore. At the time of this photo, she was little under 2 years old. . ๐Ÿ“ท Nikon D7000 + Nikon 300mm F4 ๐Ÿ“ Sariska National Park, Rajasthan ๐Ÿ”ง F4, 300mm, 1/640s, ISO 2500 . #tiger #royal #bengal #bengaltiger #tigress #bigcat #beautiful #majestic #wild #animal #rare #endangered #wildlife #animalsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #wildanimals #intothewild #sariska #nationalpark #naturephototgraphy #naturelovers #rajasthan #india #incredibleindia #natgeowild #wildlifeindia #wildplanet #_woi #animals_captures #tigerreserve at Sariska Tiger Reserve

Pelicans queueing up to enter the water after the rainstorm settled down a bit. Setting up the equipment and shooting in demanding situations like rain was an absolute no-go for me a while back. I just wouldn't risk my gear even if it meant letting go of the most beautiful moments. But with time, I've started seeing my camera and my lenses as a tool, rather than my baby, and I don't shy from giving them occasion beating. And luckily for me, they don't seem to mind the water, dust, snow, and what not. ๐Ÿ˜„ . ๐Ÿ“ท Nikon D7000 + Tamron 150-600mm ๐Ÿ“ National Zoological Park, Delhi . #greatwhitepelican #rosypelican #rosy #pelican #migratory #bird #birds #migratorybirds #beautiful #rainy #rainstorm #birdsofindia #birdsofinsta #birding #birdwatching #birdphotography #birdlovers #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifelovers #nzp #wildlifevideo #feather_perfection #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #birdstagram #bird_brilliance at National Zoological Park Delhi
