About the Image(s)

Please find image which i clicked in the last Month of 2021.

This I captured in Kanha National Park, Kanha National Park is nestled in the Maikal range of Satpuras in Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India that forms the central Indian highlands. The national park is being popularised as the Tiger reserve and interestingly is being declared as one of the finest wildlife areas in the world. This vivacious land has been the source of inspiration for Rudyard Kipling, a famous writer for his outstanding creation- “The Jungle Book”.

In this Image the Spotted Deer ( Chittal), can be seen eating the shedded antlers of another male spotted deer. The Shedded Antlers are a good source of calcium, phosphorus, mineral salts and even protein. I have zoomed in very close to capture the eyes and texture of the antlers, one can even see the saliva of the deer dripping down the antlers.

Prasad, what is a very unique nature event you captured!!! I've never see like this before! Beautiful details, and especially i appreciate the catchlight in a dear eye. Im just wondering if you have other images with deer horns showing up... it could be a good juxtaposition, and add to the story in my opinion..nevertheless, it is a great shot! congratulations!!   Posted: 01/13/2022 21:10:42

Prasad - Worthy of National Geographic in an article about the lives and habits of deer. Eating old antlers? Who knew. Nice detail in the fur, softness of the background, catchlight in the eye. Nice.   Posted: 01/16/2022 18:45:13

This is so unusual. I agree with Andrew in that it could/should be in National Geographic. It is nice that you also included the original image, as you certainly made it pop in post. Really nice shot!   Posted: 01/18/2022 10:43:25
