Wildlife Photography: Large Herd of Swamp Deer at Kaziranga National Park

The swamp deer or the Barasingha is one of India’s prettiest deer members and its designer horns are quite a sight. This species is not spotted in all of India’s forests, but seen quite frequently in huge numbers in Kanha national park in Madhya Pradesh and in Kaziranga Tiger Reserve, Assam.

I was lucky to see them in huge numbers during my last visit to the Kaziranga National Park in Assam, North East India. In this case, I saw them while completing my evening elephant safari.

And the setting sun was casting a nice golden glow on them making all of them look very photogenic. As you can see in the photographs, some of them are relaxing while some are grazing and the male members are staying alert for possible danger.

It is such moments that make you yearn to be in the wild!!
