Quiet tiger in the orange shadow
Certainly, the tiger picture I am proudest, during this Bandhavgarh & Tadoba photo trip. Tiger (Panthera tigris) Tadoba National Park, India. March 2012.
Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus, Vanneau indien) Bandhavgarh National Park, India. March 2012.
This was one of the very first times these young tigers were observable. They are still very playful and Mom has to be patient. Very patient.
Long-tailed Shrike, juvenile
Long-tailed Shrike (Lanius schach caniceps, Pie-grièche à longue queue) Lesser Grey Shrike (Lanius minor, Pie-grièche à poitrine rose) Bandhavgarh National Park, India. March 2012. Identification corrected with the valuable help of Claudy Guiot.
Smaller than a tiger
I heard that, when a scorpion has very small thin claws, it’s a sure sign that it’s more dangerous or even deadly. This one was looking pretty bad but it did not stop me from dropping to the ground to shoot a picture.
