Maya - The enchantress. The queen of Tadoba, and ruling hearts of male tigers and photographers alike. Her territory is an overlap of many male tigers such as Bobadiya, Narasimha, Matkasur, Gabbar, Saturn, Katezhari, all with whom she mated, sometimes delivering cubs and sometimes faking it, to save her cubs and sometimes fighting them off. #Tadoba #Andhari #Tiger #Reserve #tigerphotography #natgeo #hashtag #discovery #nationalgeographic #earthcanvas #wildlife #wildlifephotography #animalplanet #natgeoyourshot #discoverychannel #bbcearth #tigerphotography #yourshot_india #yourshot #indianwildlifeofficial #indianwildlife #woovlybucketlist #nikond750 #nikon400mm #nikonindia #nikonwildlife #nikonasia #nikonindiaofficial #yourshotphotographer #throughyourlens

It's isn't everyday that you see wildlife doing what they do, not bothered by people. This is what i love most about wildlife. Go somewhere remote and find one life that looks unlike anything you've ever seen before. Yep. That sums it up. #saruscrane #bharatpurbirdsanctuary #keoladeonationalpark #bird #birding #birder #birdphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeindia #indianwildlife #fishing #fisherbird #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #natgeoindia #natgeochannel #bbcearth #discovery #animalplanet #silhouette #sunrise #discover_india #earthpix #ishootraw #iamnikon #swamp #lake #startedfromthebottomnowwehere

The laughing dove (Spilopelia senegalensis) is a small pigeon that is a resident breeder in Africa, the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. This small long-tailed dove is found in dry scrub and semi-desert habitats where pairs can often be seen feeding on the ground. A rufous and black chequered necklace gives it a distinctive pattern and is also easily distinguished from other doves by its call. Other names include laughing turtle dove, palm dove and Senegal dove while in India the name of the little brown dove is often used. It was introduced in Western Australia and has established itself in the wild around Perth and Fremantle.

A series of (un)fortunate events led to this frame. We were watching the six pack boys in first light and were about to move the LandCruiser about 400m away to follow one of them as he was walking away. Unfortunately our car didn’t start due to an issue we picked up from the big rocks from following Siri the day before. So we took advantage of this dead time and just our luck that one of the six pack (there were 5 of them there) got up exactly between the rising sun and myself and I had a couple of seconds to get this frame. As they say, you create your own luck!

I was walking amidst the beautiful courtyard of Ranthambore Fort, not able to appreciate the beauty that was surrounding me. The Untamed Turf of Ranthambore National Park was calling me again and again. I am not saying that I don’t like man made monuments, I am just more of a Wilderness lover and find myself at home amidst its denizines . . Just when I started to feel odd one out, I saw this buddy of mine who made her way to one of the towers of the beautiful structure only to click photos of the wilderness of the National Park which had a beautiful vantage point to capture in her lens . . Thanks @shreeyaathavale for sharing the same passion as mine. Many more Untamed turfs to be explored with you .. Amen .. _______________________________________________________________ #vsco #vscocam #nature_wizards_vip #NGTDailyShot #indiapictures #incredibleindiaofficial #indianphotography #india_beats #_woi #_soi #india_undiscovered #desi_diaries #lonelyplanetindia #lonelyplanet #g_o_i #_indiasb #wanderlust #cntravellerindia #unlimitedindia #CNTGiveItAShot #yourshot_india #nakedplanet #bbcearth #streetphotography #skyporn #jungle #heritage #rajasthan #morning #natgeoimagecollection

The tale of a lizard’s stripes and colourful tail A new study suggests that stripes and colourful tails of some lizards may help them ward off predators. Studies have shown that body stripes and striking colouration on the tail deflect predators to attack the tail instead of the body, giving a chance for the lizard to escape. In some lizards, the tail can be lost and regrown, the stripes on the body might create an illusion in such a way that the predator ends up catching the tail instead of the main body during motion.

THE AFRICAN LANDSCAPE: Watching a herd of about fifty elephants cross the Oliphants river under the blazing hot African sun and to photograph them playing and interacting with each other without a care in the world, is refreshing to the soul. To hear the sounds of the river and the splashing and an entire family of earth's biggest and most majestic land mammals up close and under no human pressure, is refreshing and this scene is always a reminder of how much I love this continent Africa.

There are some memories which  make you smile every time you think about it .  This is one such incident. We were waiting very patiently at the pandharpauni lake in tadoba where we were seeing some movement. The grass was moving.  Lot of pug marks were there near the road showing the signs that the tiger is inside . All the guides were very firm on waiting patiently. After nearly half an hr , the  queen of tadoba ' Maya ' emerged out of the grass . We were stunned  to see this royal entry .  She emerged as if she ownd the jungle . How  charismatic !  But the best was yet to come. Within few seconds ,  these two cubs jumped  out of the grass & started  a race with one another . What a magical sight ! Three wild tigers standing right in front of my eyes . I could not believe what I was witnessing.  Lake and the morning golden light was amazing .  The best part was they were least bothered about our presence . After  playing for ample amount of time , they went inside the jungle giving us countless memories. Thanks a lot @k.h.a.n.a.b.a.d.o.s.h for  this wonderful experience Thank you @beyondwild for the amazing service . Be it accommodation , food or transport.

Endangered - Yellow Eyed Penguin | New Zealand ' 17 ------------------------------------------------------ January 20th is Penguin Awareness Day. The day helps raise awareness about the flightless birds whose numbers are dwindling by the day. The yellow-eyed penguin or hoiho is a penguin native to New Zealand. The yellow-eyed penguin is endemic to New Zealand's South Island and sub-Antarctic islands, where there are ~3000 left in the wild. It is now the rarest penguin in the world due to deforestation and the introduction of mammalian predators. Know more about the Yellow Eyed Penguin and how you can do your bit for protection of the species @ https://www.yellow-eyedpenguin.org.nz #SaveWildlife #SaveForest #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #bbcwildlifemagazine #natgeoasia #nagaraholetigerreserve #nationalgeographic #naturephotography #natureinfocus #wildkarnataka #earthcapture #bbcearth @indian.african.wildlife @naturein_focus #discover_earthpix #kabini #nationalgeographic #wildlifeindia #wildlifeonearth #bbcwildlife #natureinfocus #newzealand #penguin #penguinsofnewzealand #yelloweyedpenguin #lonelyplanet #bbcearth

Mount Jannu is sacred to people of the Limbu community, who populate the valleys of Kanchenjunga in Sikkim and Nepal. They refer to the mountain as Phoktanglungma, which means the 'mountain with shoulders'. The Limbus believe that the first people of their race were created near this mountain. An interesting story also tells of how the Limbus, historically a hunter community, magically found a script for their language near the base of this mountain. In reverence to these beliefs, there is a crude temple like structure here, well over 15,000 feet above sea level. We were told that the Limbus from down the valleys undertake a pilgrimage hike up to this temple at a particular time of the year and hold prayers. The ridge that originates to the left of Jannu eventually leads upto Kanchenjunga. It is a long long ridge though, and Kanchenjunga north base camp is yet a two day arduous walk from here.

BBC is at it again and wow do they deliver. As usual Sir David Attenborough is narrating as only he can. Dynasties consist of five episodes about five different animal families and show how they live and how the structure of such families (Dynasties) work. The picture quality is absolutely stunning and the audio mixing is superb. I was expecting very good picture and got what I wanted but the audio was way better then I had imagine.
