About wild leopards
Due to the elusive behaviour, well camouflaged coat, and nocturnal nature of leopards they can be difficult to track. It is the third largest cat of the eastern hemisphere, only the lion and tiger are larger. They are graceful, alert, and cunning (never missing an opportunity).
The coat of most leopards is light tan with many dense black spots and the tail has dark rings around it. All leopards are much alike, but those that live in forests are darker than those that live on open plains.
These fierce animals are carnivores and hunt their prey. They feed on such animals as monkeys, antelope and jackal etc…
Predators obviously all compete for food in certain areas. Sometimes one predator might kill another predator on a kill, purely for the food source, other times it might be for the better of their own offspring. Naturally predators are there to compete, if all the predators got along, food sources would be minimal.
Most of the time predators will try and avoid each other, even to the extent that some of the weaker predators have also adapted to hunting at times when their enemies might be less active, for instance the cheetah in Africa.
Wildlife photography tips
- Light is key to good photographs. Shoot in the early morning and late afternoon when the light is soft and golden.
- On overcast or rainy days, don’t put your camera away as you can shoot most of the day as the light is diffused. And there are no harsh shadows.
- A flash also comes in handy with overcast, rainy weather, as well as harsh light, example midday.
- The golden rule of wildlife photography is to spend your money on the lens and not the camera body.
- The wider the aperture, the faster the shutter speed you can obtain. This is especially useful when the light is low, or when shooting a moving subject.
- Use a tripod or beanbag to support the lenses in order to get a crystal clear shot.
- Anticipation and patience is one of the most important skills in wildlife photography. Birds and animals have behavioural patterns and with time you can learn to predict the animal’s next move.
About Aravalli Hills
The Aravallis, remnants of the oldest mountain range in the sub-continent, resemble outcroppings of rocks and are virtually barren except for thorny acacias and date palm groves found near the oases.
