My maiden drive into the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve (Coorg side) and I was greeted by this massive male tiger. He was too big to fit in my lens, friends this is my first Tiger from Nagarahole range and this forest is amazingly beautiful with a high density of prey. I donít think I should describe this tiger, the image speaks for him.
My visit was not the normal game drive trip, I was actually on an assignment at this park. I had very less time but was expected to do more; it was only because of the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve team that I managed to complete my assignment successfully. And for the first time during this trip I had severe sting by a Red Scorpion on my finger, I have photographed the culprit as well and will share it soon. He will be remembered all my life as he has left the pain in my left arm that is quite severe and is expected to be there for few more days.
Thanks to Team Naragahole Tiger Reserve for ensuring that I completed my assignment successfully.
