[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

As you can see this picture was taken about a month back at Banneghatta Butterfly Park. For the past few weeks my photography activity had been low. I had to travel for a few weeks. And nowadays Bangalore is having overcast skies with thin drizzles all through the day. I am waiting for the Sunny Day.

This is a picture of two Blue Tigers intimately engaged. I had an opportunity to take just one picture of this pair settled on a Jatropha plant. After that the pair flew still engaged and went into a dark corner that was not within reach.

The half-consumed leaves do not add harmony to the moment. Well I cannot ask this pair to pose when they are so busy.

Hi Murali.
You managed to picture amazing pair. I like perfect composition of the shot and wonderful colour palette. Lighting, details of the main subject, blurriness and colorfulness of the BG are perfect. Bravo and best wishes.
