    You ahve maintained the focus well inspite of the surrounding grass. Good job with that. The sharpness isnt ideal, but i somehow like the feel it gives to this image. Thanks for sharing... Hope to see more... Can you enlighten us about this behaviour...

    Nice behavourial shot here Atul, thanks for sharing.

    Bibhav, canines and felines often eat grass to neutralise toxins that might have entered their digestive systems. A lot of times I've seen my dogs chew up leaves and grass and later vomit it out when they have an upset stomach.

    Cheers,
    Aditya

    The shutter speed was not ideal. The eye muscles get pulled when it is chewing and it wont come sharp at 1/60 shutter speed. I have seen several instances of tiger eating grass. Last year I watched a tiger cub with tumor in Bandhavgarh eating grass for about 20-25 mins.

    Nice behaviour captured. Liked the composition. Its good that you got one eye in the clear. You can crop the horizontal twig at the top of the image.

    Thanks for sharing...
