The reverberations will perhaps never subside after a memorable sojourn in March 2013 at Bandavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh!
Bandavgarh is one of the few wildlife sanctuaries in India where Tiger sightings are reasonably predictable. Though I am guilty of being party to tiger tourism, there is much flora and fauna to be seen and enjoyed here other than the big cats.
It was in the least bit predictable for me at Bandavgarh - while I found it agonizing when everyone else were busy seeing tigers with precision - it was not till my last desperate drive that I saw the great cats. Luck and patience still has a lot to play here, just as it does in other sanctuaries.
To me, Bandavgarh was just not tigers alone, but an ideal habitat for birdwatching as well. The weather in March was nippy in the mornings and hot during the afternoon drives.
For these images, I used two Nikon full frame bodies, D700 and D800E and with 80-200/f2.8 D ED and 300/4 ED lenses.

Amazing pictures, went to bandhavgarh last December, fell in love with the place...specially Umaria...if only there was a way to set up life there and get out of Bangalore's crazy life.
There is a book, "the lonely tiger" from Hugh Allen, with stories of Satpura, it's about 400 odd Km from bandhavgarh but life is so similar. Well I'm going to be a regular on this blog now...thanks for sharing
