Tryst with Black Panther
4 long years! Yes, he kept me awaited for 4 long years until we met recently.
With so many years of disappointments since I have been visiting Kabini forest, I had by then given up all hopes of meeting the lone handsome of Kabini, all call him Mr. Blacky!!
It was my first day and first safari of this season. I was enjoying the beauty of Kabini in monsoon. Truly, Kabini forest looks splendid during monsoon!
Ma’am! Ma’am! … The whispers of our gypsy driver brought back my attention on the trail. He was whispering ‘Blacky, Blacky..
Oh My God! I can’t believe it. How come.. how come I am sighting blacky!! Before I could pick up my camera Blacky went inside the bush. I murmured, at last I saw Blacky.
The gypsy followed his movement few more meters and stopped. There was strong call of Langoors again!! This time I was ready with my camera and what happened next was truly an enthralling experience that I will remember for long.
