Went on my 1st trip to India to Bandhavgarh earlier this month to primarily photograph the Tigers. They showed up regularly on the first couple of days, then we didn't see them anymore. It was very difficult (some days I didn't take any pictures), but that's wildlife for you!

It was fairly busy to be honest even if it wasn't peak season. One of the sightings was pretty horrible with cars literally rushing to the spot. But from what I hear, it gets worse towards the dry season.

Having said that, there seem to be strict controls in place, so nothing like you experience in some places in Africa (i.e. nowhere near the crowds you get with Lions in the Kruger for example)

Unsurprisingly I don't have much showing what was going on around us as you get so little time to experience them that you have to be constantly at the ready.

Here are a few that should give you a decent idea of what was going on :)

All the images are really well done. I especially like the mood of the first tiger image and the portrait of the fourth tiger.

Well done.
