    Nice close sighting of this female. Lovely eyes. The sore spot is cleary visible, which is usually seen in males. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice to see the sore spot in a Sambar. At times the sambar also tear bark of tree and eat.

    Their call from close quarters in the silence of night can shake people who have never heard it before. These large animals help sustain tiger population. I somehow like their slow alert walk in the jungle. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
