Nilgai and Monkey


The nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus), sometimes called nilgau, is an antelope, and is one of the most commonly seen wild animals of central and northern India and eastern Pakistan; it is also present in parts of southern Nepal. The mature males appear ox-like and are also known as blue bulls. The nilgai is the biggest Asian antelope.
And this one needs no introduction :)

Katraj Snake Park

I recently did a workshop to learn photography. We had a outdoor shoot session at Rajiv Gandhi Zoo, popularly known as Katraj Snake Park.
It is located in Katraj and has a variety of snake species. Other animals like white tiger, elephant, black buck, etc are also there.
It takes around 2.5 to 3 hrs to explore the zoo at a leisurely pace.

Some wild life snaps coming up....

This brave guy was crossing the road in a ghat. He did a catwalk for 5-6 snaps.

Last month we had heavy rains in Pune.
Dark clouds, strong winds, heavy rains and lots of fallen trees.
After that for almost a month no rains.
Last week, water cut was announced. Drinking water will be supplied every alternate day.
Tough times.

But luckily, the rains are back :)
Its raining for last 24 hours, not heavily but something is better than nothing.

God, let there be RAINS :)

I captured this snap in the Pune University campus last month.
