India is my motherland and once every year I visit this diverse and beautiful country to photograph the amazing wildlife it holds in all corners. From the mountain ranges in the North to the Nilgiri ranges in the south, from the arid Rann of Kutch in the west to the hilly trails in the east, India is one country that never disappoints a wildlife lover due to its rich fauna.

India's tropical forests have big cats and beautiful birds. I was lucky to photograph the elusive Melanistic Leopard in the southern part of the country this time as well! It was a breathtaking experience, one I would never forget. All photos are taken from my Canon 1D X Mark II and 600 mm.

In case you missed it, do check out my pictures from Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil Atlantic forests, and Peru as well! Enjoy and let me know what you think!

They say, when god has created peacocks they were colorless or (black/white) Then they asked god, - you gave many colors to all birds why not give a color to us and than god gave all colors to them..
