Elusive Encounters: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.”

–Martin Buber



Langur relaxing with his snack of algae. Who needs seaweed?!!



The stunning tigress, Naina photographed by Ashu Khan. She is called Naina (in Hindi) because of those gorgeous pair of eyes.



The shy and rarely seen, Mouse Deer by Ashu Khan, naturalist at Pugdundee Safaris. In Ashu’s words, “During one of my recent evening safaris in Kanha while in pursuit of the “elusive” Tiger, I chanced upon the Indian Spotted Chevrotain (Moschiola indica) which is often referred to as the Mouse Deer..
“This diminutive animal is nocturnal, making it very difficult to see one in daylight. Occasionally a Chevrotain may be seen late in the evening or early in the morning if it ventures out into the open, like the one in this image.”
“During the day, chevrotains stay concealed in dens that may be in hollows at the base of trees, or in rocky crevices. Invariably, they are seen by sheer chance – when one is disturbed from its hiding place.”
“They are so well camouflaged that many people, who may have been visiting forests regularly, would have seen the elusive tiger or a leopard but not the “elusive” Chevrotain.”


Malabar Pied Hornbill female by Uday Kiran. The male hornbills are the family nurturers. The female lays two or three eggs in a tree hole, which is blocked off by the male with a cement made of mud, droppings and fruit pulp. There is only one narrow aperture, just big enough for the male to transfer food to the mother and the chicks. 
These unique birds are near threatened

  1. Such amazing snapshots, Natasha! I loved the way Naina was relaxing, and that Mouse deer is new to me. Such magical moments we can enjoy in the lap of nature.
    Thanks for the photographs! Animal pictures/videos are somethings I can watch on the loop. 🙂

    1. I knew you would my dear Soumya. <3 <3

      I have come to believe, most times silence is what speaks louder than words. And what better example of his than our animal kingdom, flora and fauna.

      How have you been, sweetheart? How's the year been so far.

      Big love.
