@XavierSurinyach another great tiger shot. What kit were you using?

@gamewarden 

This image is made with a Canon 5D MIII + Canon 400 f2.8 + 2x TC, made from a vehicle

 

i have been to Tadoba once till now, my favourite is Kanha the best of Jungles i feel in India ( yes corbett is wonderful but still have not got a chance to go there) 

been to Kanha, Ranthambore, Pench and Bandhavgad apart from Tadoba but find Kanha to be the richest in terms of diversity of flora and fauna

 

Currently the tiger sightings are better in Tadoba for sure, apart from Bandhavgad

Very, very sad to hear about T-17 -Sundari - here are some images from my encounter with this gorgeous lady in Ranthambhore in March 2012. My blurry one-click photos certainly don't do her justice but I comfort myself saying it's the thought that counts :)

 

Sundari relaxed and sleepy...

And while on the subject of Ranthambhore tigers, here are a few of a huge male who has reportedly killed (though not eaten) humans. Not sure what his status is now, but when I saw him, he was near the temple with idiotic pedestrians trying to approach him on foot!  Along came a warden (also on foot), yelling at the pedestrians to go away while brandishing a wooden stick at them. That wooden stick startled this huge tiger into jumping up and running away like a pussy cat. Only in India :D

We were fortunate to see this incredible male in Ranthambhore February 2014.  There were actually two, but this is our best shot.  He was simply huge.  The size just really surprised me, and we have seen some big lions in our travels. P1030496.jpeg

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

@sudhirshivaram. i was recently at Bhandhavgarh and heard that one of these cubs was dead. Poachers it seems.

~ @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.

 

Tom K.

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.
