A few photographs of RTR tigers over the years from my side. Please pardon the picture quality as I am not very good with handling cameras.

Hello All,

 

This is my first post and thanks to Hari, @@madaboutcheetah for introducing me to SafariTalk. Hope to be active on this forum and contribute to the discussions.

 

Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve never lets me down. This is a day I will never forget. First time in my life have been able to see and capture such small cubs. They are just above 3 months.

This is one of the 3 cubs of the Sukhi Patiya Tigress of the Magdhi Zone. Each of them came and posed one at a time beside it's mother and was able to photograph all of them.

We first saw all 3 running across the road and we could hardly get any image. But then she walked on the road with the 3 cubs which was captured by my other friends and later we joined them...The Tigress was sitting on the road and the cubs inside the bushes. And then the magic happened. Each cub came and posed with their mother for me to capture!

What a day! Thank you Bandhavgarh! May their tribe increase.

 

Regards,

Sudhir

~ @IamFisheye:

 

This image was taken while riding on the back of an elephant?

Such clarity!

Your camera gear may have been pushed to the limit, but your steady hands and skills resulted in a fine image.

When I saw it, I smiled.

Thank you for sharing it on Safaritalk.

This is Maya (P2) in Tadoba National Park, Maharastra. She's a two year old female who appeared on my very first safari drive in India. As you can see, she was well fed and wasn't interested in the Chital - who are clearly having conniptions as she walks past the herd.

We had insane time in March 2014. We had 10 sightings in 5 days in Kanha and Bandhavgarh. Several of the sightings were all by ourselves, which is rare for India as many of you might know. It was a fascinating time.

What a fine portrait.

 

The bent front leg, lowered overall posture, the solid profile — it's evocative.

 

The lighting highlights the setting and situation.

 

Although I've never visited India, this image captures what I've imagined.

 

Thank you for posting it.

Thought I'd add a few tiger pics from safaris to India and Nepal.  I've gone on two safaris to that part of the world and hope to go back some day---always wanted to check out Jaisalmer, Udaipur, maybe Varanasi...but I would especially like to see Corbett as I've been to Ranthambore and Bandhavgar.  I'd prefer to visit another park as well maybe Manas to see rhino as I visited Kaziranga in the past.

 

My first trip to India was long ago when I still used film.  I made a rookie mistake and took my glasses off to look through the view finder, adjusted the focus and snapped the picture...turns out almost every picture was blurry including the tiger pics I took at Ranthambore NP. My best pic was from elephant back of a rhino head on...I must not have had time to take off the glasses!  At any rate, the tiger viewing was grand and we saw one cross the road and cool off in a rock pool and another resting.

 

The second trip I visited Bandhavgarh and I was using a digital camera at the time.  The tiger snarling was from elephant back and the elephant had snapped a branch which aggravated the tiger.  She was resting from feeding on a wild pig she had killed and eaten the previous day.  Another pic is of a dominant male sleeping off the heat of the day down in a ravine or cave...we waited till he awoke from his nap and climbed and eventually crossed the road at dusk nearly missing the curfew time to exit the park...

 

I'd have to say that seeing a tiger in the wild is probably the most thrilling jolt of adrenaline of all the Big Cats I've seen in Asia, Africa and South America...

 

Again I apologize, the quality leaves a lot to be desired...maybe it will serve a purpose that you don't have to have professional quality pics to post on ST :D

Having just returned from Ranthambhore, and having seen no less than 10...that is TEN individual tigers, some multiple times...I have a lot of tiger photos. And given that it will take quite awhile to do a trip report, I'll post a few here as I process them.

 

Here's a 19 month old cub of tigress Laila.
