Tigress and her playful cub playing in blue water of River Ramganaga in Corbett Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand, India. It was Corbett's dream to see wild tigers roaming freely in the wildernesses of India. Tiger, an apex predator, is an iconic species as far as Indian Wildlife is concerned.
This curious look by a thirsty spotted deer and the pair of spot billed ducks swimming merrily past it, made a picture which was hard to resist.

Monsoon visitor in Indian western ghat region..
I was fasinate to photograph this bird closely due to attractive colors. 10 day I was monitoring habits and regular behavior of this bird and finally I got to know the timings of this bird and the comman perch. I set up my canera and waited for him to arrive, after wait of 2 hour he came on the same perch and I got this beauty.
A bit techinical challange was the subject is very very sensitive to any kind of movement and i wanted to pohotograph it with minimal distance possible.
I had set my equipment around 6 feets distance from the perch and I had to wait for it till it comes on same perch, any kind of movement was impossible so I was still like a statue.
Other issue was it was rainy day so I had covered equipment with raincoat and I was under rain.
Lighting issue was the biggest hurdle so I choose to shoot at higher ISO level and minimal shutter speed.

- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
