      Fantastic pics Dilip. Keep them coming. Always wanted to have a separate thread for wildlife.

      This thread is going to prove very expensive for me. Time to get a good telescopic lens.

      Definitely the camera. I really want to learn the art of photography though. And people like Rudra, Riju, Dilip have always been an inspiration.

      Dilip, I would love to join you on your future trips to the jungle. Do keep me informed.

      Dilip, it would be lovely if you gave us some tips on how to shoot wildlife.
      Rahul, to start off, the first thing i would say before you click a picture and the most important thing to look into is composition.Compose the image within your mind, Imagine by placing the subject at a particular location, how the picture would turn out.

      One of the best ways to compose an image is by using the "rule of thirds".

      Quoting " The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections. Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply centering the subject would.

      take this picture for example. In case of bird photography (Its definitely not a perfect rule of thirds example, just for understanding)

      Image taken from
      Rule of thirds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


      Also if you do click the picture without composing, you can later crop it according to your preferences. So the first tip, try to compose the image with subject and background both in thought.

      To be continued.....
      Regards,
      Dilip
