Summers in Central India are very harsh as the average daytime temperature hovers around 44 degree Celsius+ scorching the earth and vegetation alike and drying up water sources. It is a difficult time for the jungle denizens for they must find water in order to survive the brutal heat.

Last month I was at safari in a Central India tiger reserve and waiting there at a prominent waterhole that lay dry but for a small pool in the middle. There was no sign of any wildlife around but after a brief wait I saw a Deer herd walking cautiously towards the waterhole and settling to drink. The herd was accompanied by their trusted watchman friend, an Indian Langur Monkey who maintained a careful watch.

Shot at 70 mm to create some depth in the scene and also to show the heat effect in the surroundings.

Summer days in India are really hard to pass! In such season, this kind of small water hole is like heaven for the animals. :)
Nice picture!
