    Default Tahr

    Photographed this Tahr at Valparai. It was rubbing its face in the mud, maybe for scratching.

    Canon 50D, 100-400mm L IS USM, ISO 400, f11, 1/400, hend held

    Comment and critiques welcome..

    Nice behavior captured Mrudul, did you get any photographs of Tahr on the mountains, i mean some habitat shots.

    Earlier I didn't notice the broom lying there. Close contacts with humans and stuff used by humans can result in transmission of diseases. Unfortunately, these are the consequences when roads cut through wildlife habitats.

    Praveen, we saw Tahr in the Ghat section only. Didn't see them on mountains. Thanks for the comments.

    Amusing image but speaks of human interventions in their habitats. Thanks for sharing.
