The Sanjay Gandhi National Park Photography Contest 2015
Taking The Plunge
Joint Third Prize: Saurabh Sawant
Seen here is a herd of chital Axis axis, led by a nimble stag, across the Tulsi lake. The lake, surrounded by abundant forest cover, offers one of the best habitats for the deer within the park. One of the main herbivores found here, the deer are a primary prey source for leopards, while the lake provides potable water to forest and city denizens alike.
