[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've maintained in my notes in earlier posts that in a world where Tiger population is dwindling so rapidly, the Jim Corbett National Park stands out like a shining star.one of the main reasons is the abundance of prey, food, for tigers here.
Chitals (spotted deer) are the staple food of tigers in this Reserve.
This is not a very good quality post, but I love it because this beautiful place i've captured here is now submerged under the waters of the Ramganga, here seen flowing peacefully in the BG.
Thanks or looking!

Hi Goldy

As I said in my previous critique on your elephant photo, there might be various reasons for posting a specific shot and here you have mentioned some reasons that actually go beyond the direct visual value of the photo as such. You lament the plight of the dwindling tiger population of the world, but highlight the success story and at the same time are creating awareness of the Jim Corbett National Park. The interesting part is that you do it by showing us the staple food source of the tigers, the Chitals. Btw, there are 49 animals and it was easy to get the correct number. I counted their legs and divided it by 4 (chuckle).

Well done and TFS.

Like this one, a beautifully composed picture. Excellent POV.Good choice that you have gone for a vertical composition here. Lighting is good and good natural colours. I really enjoyed looking at this picture.

Hi Goldy,

A wonderful scene and all the deer are a bonus. Jim Corbett National Park must be a magnificent place if this is an example. It's hard to imagine that peaceful looking river did so much damage. I love the composition.


Interesting shot in the vertical, that's a nice size herd Goldy..
Looks like about fifty :)
Well done & TFS,

A deerscape!:-) Might be the first of it's kind. This is added to the theme "Where they really live". Excellent presentation and wonderful image and composition.

Hi Bro splendid scene capture of these lovely deers. THanks a lot. Cheers,


Splendido paesaggio naturalistico, eccellente composizione con uno scenario spettacolare e sorprendente per la sua bellezza, ottima nitidezza e molto belli i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Dear Goldy,
Great to see deer heard at Corbett; but this could be the result of declining number of predators ! Bravo for this capture :).
