Finally I clicked a decent night shot from our balcony. Its always so beautiful outside, its almost impossible to get that beautiful scene on camera.

Zoo chronicles VI – White Tiger

 

I would love to flood my entire blog with his pictures.

I fell in love with him at first sight. He is the star of the Zoo without any doubt. Even the King of the Jungle take a back seat in front of him. Here we go…The white Bangali Tiger.

My first look at him.

Crowd was a little boring I guess. Big guy could not suppress a yawn.

Before we left, we came to visit this guy again. That time, he was up and put up a mighty show for his audience.

Zoo chronicles V – Kings of the jungle

 

The best part of the Zoo is the Safari. Nothing can ever replace the warm anticipation to see something wild and the chilling shiver which pass down your spine when you see those deadly predaceous animal up and close.

I can never forget the moment when I saw this mighty creature just few feets away from me. This is one of my all-time fav shots.

Zoo chronicles I – Stolen Moments

 

“Magic can be found in stolen moments” – Unknown

Today, we stole one day from our monotonous chaotic life and decided to do something different. We ended up inside the famous Nehru Zoological Park to fulfill a long pending wish. A unexpected break from servers, releases, bugs and from all those annoying worries of life to be spent among the hoi polloi of Jungle.

Well maintained environs inside the  zoo is unbelievable. To maintain such a vast space like a heaven in the midst of a heavily populated city is not an easy job.
