Kabini

I've still not seen a leopard in the wild and I was hoping to catch a glimpse of it at Harsha's territory in Kabini. He had taken a snap of a resident leopard and there had been good sightings of them in the forests nearby so the time seemed appropriate to go there. So, Kalyan, Noella and I drove to Kabini on a Saturday morning and decided to stay there for a few days. The idea was to catch up with Harsha as well as (hopefully) get some good wildlife photographs. Kabini is a fantastic place and is very close to my heart for a variety of reasons and one of them is being able to see so many elephants. It's almost unimaginable that we see at least a hundred elephants are times along the back waters and that's a considerable population of elephants given their endangered status!

Anyways. We did not see a leopard or even a tiger, but we did see something interesting...

Smooth-skinned Otter. First Glimpse. Good telephoto lens does help! :)



It decides to drop by for a closer look.


It's calls are still echoing in my ears. Wonderful animal this.
