I made this image on 31st of March 2018 at Masai Mara national reserve, Kenya. I have been following the big cats from quite long time and it’s so nice to see different behavior of these magnificent felines. In this image the lion and lioness were on the hunting mode to feed their pride but the lion kept on stationing at several places and this really annoyed the lioness and thus that the expression. This was very new to me as I thought only humans show these expressions/annoyed (Man vs Woman) but was amazed to see and document the animal behavior. How we ( Humans ) take care of our family in the same way the lions/Animals also take care of their pride, said that When it comes to animal behavior, never say never. In fact, most people who spend a lot of time in the bush continuously witness behavior that is believed not to happen or has never been recorded. The reality is that animals act of their own free will, and don’t always follow the rules of textbooks. What many people believe about animal behavior could be the result of witnessing limited examples of a particular situation. Did I say that Male lion is Lazy? No they are not lazy actually male lions have a reputation for being lazy, but that is far from the truth. A male’s job is critical to the protection of his pride. Male lions patrol the territory where the pride lives, and will fight to protect it. They travel vast distances to patrol their territory, by scent marking and vocalizing, to ensure other lions who may be a threat, stay away. It is critical for male lions to keep out other males, because if another male or coalition comes to dominate, they will kill all the cubs to keep from expending energy on raising cubs that are not their own offspring. I hope you like my small write up and the image.
The festive mood is electrifying. Young kids, who throw turmeric ( haldi ) powder at each other, also drag visitors into the celebration. Sri Keloba Rajabau Waghmode, the ‘Baba’ is all drenched in turmeric, of the devotees, who walks for over 17 days from his village to reach Pattan Kodoli for the festival every year. He ocassionaly gets into trance dance and tells the fate of village, predicts rains. The whole comunity joins in the tantrik dance, the whole atmosphere is covered in yellow dust of turmeric.
Where are we living today, what's gonna be our future? A real scene of modern Indian city Bangalore. A scene of Bangalore Drought 2017. Urbanization developed too fast in this city since last 5 years. Real estate industry growth and construction higher storage building is causing the drought. Water level goes down day by day since last 5 years. This is one of the scenic lake is situated almost in the heart of the city. Not only here many other reservoirs and lakes are drying out these days. Construction took place where tree cut, land digging, site planning which cause less rain, drastic climate change. The city is going to face the same as reflect in series of photograph if we can imagine coming days without water.
Capturing a time in one picture is very easy. But showing different forms of time is difficult. So decided to show time in my own way. Only you have to relate your present life situation with this picture Character's & choose the best version of your present, past and future.
I absolutely liked how simple this frame is, without wasting any time I captured it on my camera till the end of times. The man sitting on the bench was like icing on the cake. The tree stood out from the rest of the elements in the picture.
Cubs day out, Is this handsome a show stealer ? Yes I believe. He's one among the bold cubs of the elusive female of Central India.
An 18 month old cub who's turned out to be extremely handsome and eye soothing when it comes to his glorious avatar. He was so calm and quite but those stares can portray how a glorious future is lying ahead of him & his journey. He's got all what it requires to be a stern, stiff and future warrior.
Wildlife is totally engaging as usual, and every living being would reflect us back with emotions and expression when surrounded by a situation. It's the same with every natural behaviour. Just look in to those eyes and get hold of that priceless stare, A natural act which compromises every emotional aspect.
Patience does matter a lot, in fact it has to be the key feature in every photographer who wished to explore wildlife and get it executed well. It's not a condition or suggestion rather a must have skill to over come al sort of mental asylum you will be going through during the course period of exclusive sighting. Staying calm and remaining still alone with pinch of patience does reflect back a lot.
Difficulty stage varies between every scenario. Well having the above said qualities on live field can take your visual skills to next level.
After searching for over 2 days for this tigress, one late evening, she walks out. Under the golden light in the open grass, she walks out and gives a majestic pose for all us who were waiting for her. This truly is a dream shot which, for which I've dreamt for many years. This image is one of the few images which truly shows the royal stance of these elusive wild beings and shows us the importance of removing them from their current position of being critically endangered.
This pic was taken at a potter's house in Bangalore, Karnataka, some one month before Ganesh Puja. The child in the picture is the potter's son, and he is deaf & dumb.He sees and feel the beauty of the world through his eyes. One can even feel the same while looking into his eyes. This child was arranging the in-completed idols of Lord Ganesha.
