Portraits of Wildlife

Last Saturday, I was planning to head for ‘Sarangeti National Park’ Africa to shoot some wildlife pictures but thought instantly that animals and birds there in Jawalakhel Zoo would get offended not having this opportunity to have their portrait taken by me. So, instead of heading for Africa, I went to Zoo with a ‘Photographer Assistant’ to shoot some portraits of wildlife. It was so fun and new experience to scrutinize wildlife through viewfinder and get close by zooming telephoto lens. Let me share some of my “million dollar” shots.

Deer in day’s siesta.

Raindeer munching vegetation.

Another kind of deer bewildered to have me taking its pictures.


Hungry rhino bucketing food thrown by visitors.

Elusive tiger and seem so restless.

Hippo stare and that day I came to know that they do have skin 6cm thick.

Arna ‘Wild buffalo’ in deep thought.



Pond and Swan makes a perfect reflection.

It’s not D2Hawk but real hawk.

Jailed peacock.

She Danphe (national bird)

Eagle enjoying the Sun.

Copra peek.

Melancholy Nil Gai, I don’t know why.

Colourful Sunaulo Kalis.

Pigeon with belle-bottom pant.

Waiting but not for fish.

  1. It is sheer joy to share my first Photo-blog here in EU and have these nice compliments. I am ENCOURAGED. Thank you all and thanks to my Photographer assistant.

    Learning to see world as a photographer, definitely need some skill of reading light, and basics of photography. And I am learning to hone my photography skill more.

    And name of this ‘wise creature’ is ‘Black-Headed Ibis’ (Threskiornis Melanocephalus).

  2. Nice Shots, and a very good attempt. Hope to see more of “Billion Dollar Shots!!” :mrgreen: Keep it up!

  3. Ahhh… nice shots!!!

    u just got a perfect shot of the rhino… and the last one looks like a wise old creature 🙂 what is it called?

  4. Lovely shots from African National park. Hope the Tiger and Lions did not follow you there so we are able to view those remote shots. I hope to travel around Africa some day.

  5. Thumbs up !! 🙂

    n thanks for this majestic escape for a moment that I just felt.

    You must have learned ‘yet another dimension’ of photography again this time, right? 🙂
