I love the game drives into Bandipur during the monsoons. Wildlife amidst lush green surroundings and drops of rain is such a refreshing sight. On more than a few occasions, I got lucky witnessing some interesting behaviour and action, other times, pure joy of making images in the rain drenched forest. I have picked a few such moments!
Off with your head! A jungle myna displays its hapless victim.
Stripe-necked Mongoose devours a snake that saw no escape
A long gone king poses in his pool close to the safari track
A beautiful stag stands still enjoying the generosity of the rain gods
Post rains, a white-throated kingfisher contemplates its next move.
This year the monsoon has finally made its presence felt. Time to make the best of what the jungles have to offer. Bandipur, Kabini…we just have to see!
