If you live by a river, you should make friend with him!
Place: Cauvery wildlife sanctuary
Id: Mugger crocodile |
Conservation status: Vulnerable |
There is a stable number of crocodiles in the park and I am quite lucky to see them sunbasking at noon time, regularly. They have a behavior to hide into the water when they see anything threatening on the land. While coracle rides, its interesting to see this poor creature getting into water when we approach them, apparently that looks as if it's coming to attack us.
This was shot using 200-500mm with a pretty far distance, without putting the animal to panic.
4 AM. Benaras is sleeping. The stars are dead. The people are hollowed out like the inside of a drum playing the same beat it grew up to...
