This Tigress is know as Suki-pathiha female ....of Magdhi Zone....at Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve... Spotting of this female is difficult becose of the terrain and the vast area it covers....Not many people have spotted this Tigress.
Me and my friend were lucky to spot this one as we were returning late in the evening....she was sitting in the bush and decided to cross the road....We parked our Gypsy at safe distance....Then she came out of the bush...walking with authoritative stride....she stood for a moment and gave us this classic stare....I have the entire sequence of her walk across the road....then she disappeared into the thick foliage...
Oh what a sighting it was...we were only 2 of us for the entire forest....except for the guide and driver.

Spectacle Head cobra are the common cobra....having a spectacle like marking on their back of their hood...They spread the hood when in danger and is a posture taken when its about to strike...they stand about a foot or two tall and the bite will be death knell....
They are no threat unless you step on them...they strike in defense...Usually it is the victim of sense less mankind who either over worship or kill it due to the shear fear of its potent venom...
Once such pic. shows it was hurt....!!!

These young one of Heron...were waiting on the edge of the rocks for their mother to get some food early morning...It was rather facinating and touching to see this bondage and love to upbring the young ones.
Few lessons to be learnt......!!

Cormorants are mainly found near water bodies, rivers & lakes...Basically waders, you can often find them sitting on the rocks spreading their wings to dry. They are very meticulous in grooming their feathers devoid them of algae and insects. Little DIFFICULT TO PHOTOGRAPH & GET FEATHER DETAILS DUE THEIR DARK COLORS.
