It was past 8 during our morning safari in Bandipur on the 1st of January,2019. The jungle was quite active with a lot of movement, as we kept moving in our gypsy this francolin crossed the path in front of us with its mate. Unnerved by our presence it took its own sweet time to cross and nonchalantly looked back at us as we proceeded ahead. Loved the way it blended with the surroundings.
