The watch has just begun

This is my first trip to  Bannerghatta national park. I really wanted to go to the safari ride and see what is in store for me.

Yes, my wishes came true. Was really really excited and happy to see every now and then, I was being said so and so animal is there to your left, right , center.  The clicking started and the day has finally started getting its actual meaning. My camera felt so happy, it gave me some amazing shots in return.

Among all the animals I happen to see, the laziest was the lion. Wanna see how he was actually lying down!!

Following the lazy fellow, double gates, we entered the white tigers’ section. The driver was really unfair with me this time. Every stop he made, the trees blocked and I couldn’t take good pictures. Finally I screamed to stop at my perfect location with loads of please and stops. My voice finally reached him and loads of thanks now. He stopped at the perfect spot and the clicks continued. This time, it was literally a stunner show for our eyes. We spotted two tigers and they  gave a complete show for us.

The tiger first saw his/her partner ( I start with his) and started walking towards her.  The tigress was hiding behind and watching him. Slowly there was a roar which kept on increasing and commanding at him for entering her territory.  When he tried to move further, she gave him a tight slap for entering into her territory. Later when I asked my hubby ( a veterinarian) for that rude behavior,  hubby told me that the tiger is either trying to mate with her or its sign of not to invade its territory  (so truly wild).  The hitting and rolling started and like every old Indian film, the remaining scenes were censored ( for here the driver drove the van from that place).

For sure, the pictures that were captured will remain as a great memory for me.

Dolphins

When I first heard about Chincoteague Island on a photography meetup, they were talking about ponies and birds.  Slowly more search about this place made me know that this place is awesome for dolphins too.  I have been to some dolphin shows but never saw a wild dolphin happily playing in their own home (Ocean).

All we know is  dolphins are well disciplined and when trained acts exactly what the master says.  But these wild dolphins being not pampered were unique to watch.  They were totally shy and kept moving away from humans. A near sign of human around them also makes them swim miles away.  But luckily, we happened to see two groups  after driving miles into the ocean in our little cruise boat.

Totally enjoyed the fact that these dolphins were not in any zoo or aquarium where they were fed fish continuously and asked to play for human’s entertainment.  From the way they were enjoying their swim, I could clearly understand their freedom and their love for their home. Meeting groups of their friends and families here and there in the ocean and having a great swim.  Just wish all the dolphins in aquariums where they are trapped for human entertainment are released into the ocean and let them enjoy their home like we humans do.

These pictures were taken with my new Kenko 2x Teleplus along with Tamron 70-300 telephoto lens on my Sony a230.
