Its been a lucky season. I’ve been fortunate in seeing and photographing young ones of a few key species found in India. The Joy of seeing a new generation of these animals in times which are hard for their survival has been an overwhelmingly emotional experience.
After a really long wait, I finally managed to be there at the right place at the right time to photograph the Baby King Cobras which had just hatched in a nest close to Agumbe.
I also made a short trip to Nagarhole where 2 leopard cubs abandoned in a sugarcane field close to the Nagarhole forest by the mother and have been rescued by the forest department.
The one question that came across my mind each time I saw them was “What’s their future?”
A lots been happening. For starters I’m no longer with asklaila. It has been a very hard decision to quit a company where I started from day 1 of the company. Well I’ve moved on to fulltime photography and filmmaking. I’m working part time with felis. Its a new exciting phase of life I’m moving on to, where most things are new.
My last few trips to the jungles have been mostly to the western ghats, and to Agumbe. Was with the filming crew of the Nat-geo King Cobra documentary with sandesh, also got to see the hatching of king cobra babies!!! Will post a pic or 2 on that later. A photo-expedition to Agumbe went really well. I couldn’t post the details as the seats were filled even before I sent out a mailer. I’m planning to do another one soon, and will keep you guys posted.
Haven’t had time to process photos but here is the Bush frog and the Beddome’s cat snake I photographed at Agumbe.
I’m conducting a photo expedition in the heart of the rainforests of Karnataka, on 2,3,4 of october (long weekend)
Details are here http://amoghavarsha.com/workshops/agumbe/
There are just 2 seats left, drop me a line if you are interested.
Been traveling for the last two weeks, Wayanad and then Agumbe. At Agumbe we waited for 3 days but missed a lot of action that followed after I left. Will be traveling for the next month aswell. Promise to post pics in a couple of days.
