The eyes chico they never lie. The great words by Al Pacino in the classic scarface. Wildlife enthusiasts will agree that of all the big cats the #leopard is the most elusive. It's easy to spot a tiger but spotting a leopard is hardwork. This is the frame when I came face to face with the elusive #bigcat for the first time in my life. It was hardly 50 metres away but it's so well camaflouged it took me a while to realize someone had her eyes fixed on me. By the time I saw her she already had her eyes on me. Well I was lucky it was patient enough and did allow me my shot but the eyes. What can I say. They were transfixed on me the whole while I was there. It did come out of the bushes but never let her eyes of me #bigcatsofinstagram #jhalana #jaipur #natgeoyourshot #indianwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlife #picoftheday #photooftheday #pictureoftheday #travelphotography #wanderlust #travelblogger #naturephotography #naturelovers #natureloversgallery #nikond3400 #nikkor200_500mm #indiatourism #instanature #instagood #naturelover #nature_lovers #nature_shooters #creature #creatures #lovenature #jaipur #bigcat #leopards
The #indianroller is a fairly common bird across asia. In India it is common in the plains and is associated with hindu legends. Because of its blue throat the bird is also known as neelkanth in many parts of india. It is the state bird of three states in india: odisha, telangana and karnataka. Even though it's a fairly common bird I saw it for the first time during my expedition to look for the elusive leopard in #jhalana in #jaipur . Compared to other small birds they are fairly easy to click as they do not move around that much. This one actually sat on an old tree and was patient enough to give me the shots I needed #naturephotography #natgeoyourshot #your_best_birds #birdsofinstagram #birdwatching #birdphotography #birding #bestbirdshots #wildlifephotography #nuts_about_birds #birdlovers #feather_perfection #birdfreaks #travelblogger #nikond3400 #nikkor200_500mm #photooftheday #wanderlust #travelphotography #pictureoftheday #instagood #instanature #naturelover #lovenature #creature #creatures #eye_spy_birds
The leopard is one of the five species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. The leopard occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia. A leopard is the supreme opportunist and will also eat birds, reptiles, rodents, and even insects. 🐆LEOPARDS OF JHALANA 🐆. #photography #wildfire #wildlifephotography #jaipur #jaipurdiaries #jaipurtalks #leopardprint #leopard #photographers_of_india #flora #fauna #jhalana #jhalanaforest #jhalanawildlife #jhalanawildlife #jhalanasafari #jhalanaleopards #jhalanaleopardsanctuary
Leopardscape. Can you see it? This beautiful leopardess was camouflaged in her surroundings which made it difficult to see her. For the first 10 mins I wasn’t been able to spot her as she was lying flat on the ground. Track 2 in general are amazing places to see and photograph leopards, as most of the area has high visibility and plain grasslands. #wild #leopard #landscape #camouflage #travelphotography #experience #bigcat #feline #natgeo #natgeoindia #natgeoyourshot #india #Jhalana #nikon #alwar #alwarclicks #tigerreserve #l4l #likeforlikes #l4f #f4f #followforfollowback #likeit
A shy jackal running away from our vehicle in the Little Rann of Kutch. - A golden jackal photographed in the middle of the desert at Little Rann of Kutch, November 2018. - The ancestor of the golden jackal is believed to be the extinct Arno river dog that lived in Mediterranean Europe 1.9 million years ago. It is described as having been a small, jackal-like canine. Genetic studies indicate that the golden jackal expanded from India around 20,000 years ago towards the end of the last ice age. The oldest golden jackal fossil, found at the Ksar Akil rock shelter near Beirut, Lebanon, is 20,000 years old. The oldest golden jackal fossils in Europe were found in Greece and are 7,000 years old. There are seven subspecies of the golden jackal. The golden jackal is more closely related to the gray wolf, coyote, African golden wolf, and Ethiopian wolf than it is to the African black-backed jackal or side-striped jackal. - #hyena #scavenger #noctural #scavengers #stripedhyena #jhalana #jaipur #rajasthan #india #ranthambore #kabini #bandhavgarh #kanha #littlerannofkutch #velavadar #canon #wildlife #wildlifephotography #safari #dog #jackal #goldenjackal #wildlifeplanet #bbcearth #serengeti #masaimara
The Indian Roller is a stocky bird about 26-27cm long and can only be confused within its range with the migratory European Roller. #jhalana #jhalanaforest #jhalanawildlife #wanderlust #discovering #majesticwildlife #netgeo #jhalanaforest #birds #photography #wildlifephotography #fauna #birdsofinstagram #indianroller #indianrollerbird #rajasthan

I am elated with these shots. Low light, leopard on the move, jeeps desperately attempting to catch her in the headlights and me struggling to pan to lock my camera on her. Result: utter satisfaction #leopard #jhalana #wildlife #natgeowild #yourshotnatgeo

A sub adult leopardess walking through the tall monsoon bushes. Believe me, the best time to visit Jhalana is during the monsoons as the forest completely transforms from a golden bone dry forest to green emerald, and its resemblance to Kabini becomes uncanny :) #jhalana #wild #wildlife #travelphotography #experience #natgeo #natgeoindia #natgeoyourshot #leopard #feline #bigcat #featured_wildlife
This young leopardess of Jhalana sure did know how to keep us audience entertained. First she rolled in the mud, then drank water from the watering hole and even climbed up a tree before strutting off in to the forest sounding off alarm calls by peacocks and langurs. If you are visiting Jaipur you must visit the leopard reserve. Happy to help if you have any questions. . . . . . . #leopard #jhalana #jaipur #rajasthan #bigcat #wildlife_shots #natgeowild #naturyst #wildlife_india #wildlifelovers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildindia #nikonphotography #natgeoindia #animallovers #animalplanet #travelcaptures #luxurytravel #incredibleindia #travelgram #jaipurdiaries #beautifuljaipur #jaipurlove #jaipurcity #picoftheday #discoverearth #nikonp1000
A typical Leopard portrait during the summers, when the leopard looks very much like the background :) Shot at Jhalana :) #wild #wildlife #leopard #Jhalana #travelphotography #experience #natgeo #natgeoindia #natgeoyourshot #featured_wildlife #nikon #india
Tree top leopard. This sighting is engraved on my heart, as I always wanted to see a leopard on top of a tree against green background. This is not a really good presentation of a leopard on a tree but it has its own eerie charm. It seems as if this beautiful sub adult is sniffing the yellow flowers on top of the tree! Jhalana has a lot to give to its admirers, and has always delivered as well. My favourite time to visit #Jhalana is monsoons, as you can see what magic monsoons give to your frames :) #wild #leopard #travelphotography #experience #wildlife #bigcat #feline #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeoindia #featured_wildlife #jaipur #urbanwildlife
Jahalna is an urban forest right in the middle of Jaipur. 30 beautiful leopards reside there. Try visiting next time you are in the area #jaipur #jhalana #photooftheday #leopard #rajasthan #canon
A golden jackal photographed on a winter morning in the Tala Zone of Bandhavgarh National Park, November 2018. I often use a custom white balance of 3200 during very early in the morning hoping to make some interesting images with a cooler tone! This works extremely well during winter mornings as it tends to be a bit foggy as well. - #hyena #scavenger #noctural #scavengers #stripedhyena #jhalana #jaipur #rajasthan #india #ranthambore #kabini #bandhavgarh #kanha #littlerannofkutch #velavadar #canon #wildlife #wildlifephotography #safari #dog #jackal #goldenjackal #wildlifeplanet #bbcearth #serengeti #masaimara
Only in Jhalana. Jhalana has lived up to and beyond my expectations. When the park was opened for tourism, seeing a glimpse of this spotted beauty was a rarity. But now you have to be really unlucky if you came to Jhalana and didn’t have a good sighting. I made this image during the summers of 2018. We saw this beautiful leopardess in the far end of Bada area and she walked almost a kilometre towards Panther Jhopa. During a graceful walk she attempted to hunt squirrels, hence she climbed trees more than 4 times. This sighting was extremely special to me and will always be etched in my memory of this gem of a forest. #Jhalana #wild #wildlife #bigcat #leopard #travelphotography #experience #urbanleopard #urbanwildlife #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #jaipur #india #featured_wildlife

| Eurasian hobby | A long-distance migrant ; speed and aerobatic skills enable it to take swallows and even swifts on the wing, and barn swallows or house martins have a characteristic "hobby" alarm call ! Hobbies nest in old nests of crows and other birds. The tree selected is most often one in a hedge. This bold and courageous bird and was used in falconry, trained to hawk birds like quails, larks, hoopoes, drongos, etc. #Jhalana Forest Area October 2018 #Jaipur #rajasthan #wild #hunting #on the wing #animalelite #bird_brilliance @zealwildlife @shot.at.sight #best_birds_of_ig #your_best_birds #allmightybirds #wildlifeIG #ig_discover_birdslife #planetbirds #splendedanimals #nuts_about_birds #birds_capture #eye_spy_birds

“Leopard Mayhem” Jhalana is currently one of the best places to see wild leopards anywhere in the world, but a couple of years back most of the world was unaware of Jhalana’s existence, you maybe wondering why so? 2 years back, Jhalana was only known for a Kali mata temple situated inside the forest, it was also quite famous as a family picnic spot. And by that time many of the citizens of Jaipur itself were unaware of the existence of leopard in this small fragment of Aravali range. Soon many hardcore wildlife enthusiasts from Jaipur sought great potential in Jhalana as a leopard safari. First public vehicles were allowed to commute inside the forest at a very cheap price, but the safaris went in vain as leopard is a very shy animal, hence it wasn’t used to the presence of humans. But there is a female leopard, called Flora which completely changed Jhalana’s destiny. She quickly became habitual to human presence and taught the same to her cubs, which changed Jhalana’s tourism completely. And now Jhalana has a full scale gypsy safari just like any other national park, small scaled poaching vanished as the area was exposed to tourism, and ‘Project Leopard’ the first of its kind, which protects the interests of leopards, was inaugurated in Jhalana and is active in 18 other sanctuaries all across Rajasthan. I consider myself very fortunate to have witnessed this massive and rapid change in Jhalana and its leopards who are now bolder than ever. Jhalana is home to about 36 leopards living and coexisting with humans in a small forest of 18-20 sq km. in the image is Juliet, sub adult daughter of Flora’s supposedly 3rd litter :) #wild #wildlife #nature #naturephotography #travelphotography #experience #leopard #pardus #cat #feline #conservation #natgeo #featured_wildlife #natgeoyourshot #nikon #Jhalana

How many monkeys can you spot? 🐒
This is what Jhalana has to offer. It was a cloudy day, with clouds rumbling almost throughout the safari, and we had no hopes of seeing a leopard. As it started to drizzle we quickly put on plastic covers on our gypsy at the entry gate of the park. After almost 15-20 minutes a forest worker gave us a hint of a leopard inside the public park outside Jhalana, we quickly made our way inside the park, while it had started pouring heavily. We immediately knew that there was a leopard in close proximity as Langoors were giving out alarm calls at the top of their lungs. Soon, in the twinkle of an eye a leopard fondly called Juliet and probably the most tourist friendly leopard of the reserve, came charging out of a bush and tried to pounce on a Langoor but it was a failed attempt. As it had started to rain heavily, she quietly climbed up a tree and watched us for a while. It was one of the most thrilling experiences I’ve ever had in the wild :) Jhalana, Aug 2018 #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #travelphotography #experience #jhalana #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #nikon #featured_wildlife
