#LeopardsOfChambal and the incredible landscape they live in.
The walls of this gorge stand at 90 degrees, and according to the local fishermen, the leopards often push their prey tumbling down these cliffs to kill them. A bit like snow leopards in Ladakh.
While a lot has been spoken about the Leopards of Kabini, Bera and Mumbai, almost no-one knows about this heaven for leopards, called Chambal.
Will be doing a series of posts on them. Here is the first image, a lady emerging form her cave.
A lifer from my recent visit to Trivandrum. Couldn’t bird much. Got the Cotton Pygmy Goose. They are among the smallest waterfowl in the world. Usually found in pair. Pic1 Male and Pic2 Female.
