[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I'm back after my 3 day Easter break, went back home to the Himalayan foothills!
Another post of these beautiful spotted Deers also called Chital in India!
This species of deers is one of the main reasons for the thriving success of tiger conservation at the Jim Corbett National Park since this happens to be the main food item for tigers!
Hope you like this one!

Hallo Goldy
I do like the fact that you have captured this group of Chittal's in their natural surroundings. The nature around them looks very green and I am sure they are well fed because there is enough to eat. You have caught these deer's in relaxed poses. The details of the spots as well as the big eyes are visible and very impressive.
Kind regards

Hi Bro, Eelaphantman Goldy,

Hi Goldy!

No elephants this time :)

I like how they are aligned up, like a group of men searching for something on the ground. Very nice and lightful shot, TFS!

Best regards,
