Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon PowerShot SX100 IS

Spotted at Nagarahole Forests, a female Gaur with her calf. She could be 1000 Kgs …even her calf is so muscular!! Yet they are known to be shy. This photo op was possible only because it was dusk, when wild life sightings are more probable.

  1. Wow that is an impressive beast. These can be very dangerous were they to charge down towards you. Shy but extremely dangerous when angry.

    I remember seeing a lonely male bison blocking our Maruti 800 in the Kanha sanctuary. My heart must surely have skipped a beat.

    • But not as dangerous as the law. I just learned that stopping or getting off your vehicles while passing through the forest can attract the wrath of law sooner than a bull’s fury. (So another thing to contend with besides bad light and unsatisfactory angle… perhaps, one needs prior permission).

  2. cool composition but the pic is too grainy!
