Wildlife Photography: Innocent look of a Young Gaur at Puduthotam Tea Estates, Valparai

An early morning walk in the tea gardens of Valparai’s Puduthotham Estate leads me to a large herd of gaurs. It is quite a surreal experience to see these magnificent creatures graze in tea estates. While I was admiring this large herd of gaurs, my eye caught the attention of a young one who seemed innocent and oblivious to the threat that we humans posed to them. This herd had about three calves, but I guess this one was the most photogenic.
