When you in a photoshoot of a BIG CAT then every step it takes is a FRAME.
Here in Frame is “Choto Maa” the Tigress of Sundarbans Biodiversity & this is also my debue sighting and Photography as well.
It was the 2nd day of our trip after immense search for the Tiger at last the Queen Choto Maa ultimately came out in open.
The very experience of TIGER SIGHTINGS are always so cherished sweet memories for any WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER like me.
I would say SUNDARBAN BIODIVERSITY is probably one of the toughest place in India to spot and photoshoot tigers beings biosphere mangrove forest.
The forest here is absolutely different from any another tiger park across India.
It is different from all other TIGER RESERVES in India. where there is no probability of any sort of alarm call, water safari routes have munch restrictions and restricted boat movements etc are hurdles to spot the big cat.
I will say here it’s game of patience where you have to play with some fresh pug marks, assumptions, experience of good guide/boatman and lots of good luck beating a different strategy & game plan altogether. Only you need to believe yourself and need full blessings of mother nature.
& This was happened in reality with the dedicated effort of full team Satyaki Naha, Sridam Gayen, Golok Gayen, Shibu Mondal, Amal Mondal, Pradip Mandal & obviously blessing of mother nature 🙏
