Homepage Day 0 Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Gallery Funny captions
This series of posts is about my travel to Ranthambore National Park (Tiger Reserve) in the state of Rajasthan, India in February 2013.
The primary goal of the trip was to sight the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger in the wild and capture it in my camera for posterity. But it was also my intention to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the forest and revel in the stunning beauty and diversity of the flora and fauna. And lastly I was looking to take as many wildlife photographs as possible in order to improve my photography skills.
