Thirst Quench @ common water hole...!!

Every natural forest area has water hole which is a common converging point for all the animals. They all come to quench their thirst either in the day or at night...

I have seen tigers, elephants, birds, cheetals, sambar deers, languors and even parakeet visiting these water holes...A great deal of activity happens here...starting from fishing to hunting.

It is also a place of hide and ambush for the predators as they are sure of their prey visiting those spots.

Here is one such picture shot at Pench Tiger Reserve at Madhya Pradesh...of Cheetals drinking water...I could get the reflections and all of them dipping their head together....It was a treat to watch....I had to maintain a complete silence as even a slightest noise the Cheetals would perceive it as threat.
