Battle of the Claws. Sloth Bear And a Tiger.
It was Friday evening and our first safari, and to begin with we had missed couple of tigers. We moved around few more spots, only to return to the exact same spot where we had seen the tiger sleeping and had missed shots of. Tiger was gone, a new entrant bhaaloo aka bear was on the tree, with our enthusiasm high we wanted to get photographs of a bear on tree(again a rare sight), and somehow reach a decent spot and got some good shots of bear on tree. Magic moment coming up, suddenly we see the earlier tiger returning back and starting to move towards the bear on tree and now my imaginations started running wild, and this is were you lose yourself as a photographer and submit yourself to the spectacle of the nature but have gone through similar thing before I convinced myself to be in present and extremely lucky to have witnessed one of the best sight.
