Punta Arenas, Chile
I will be touring around Pategonia, from Punta Arenas, Torres del Paine, and all the other most spectacular spots along route 40, winding up in Santiago. I am planning mostly day trips with light to moderate hiking only in the national parks, no camping, for photographic purposes, with hired vehicle and local knowledge guide about to be finalized. I am well traveled, with nearly 40 countries so far, and I like to get the most adventure, and comfort, for the money I have available for my travels! and as you can see, I get around... http://thewanderinghoneybadger.com
Sharmeeli The Queen
It was shot at 5:30 P M the intense low light action thanks to my full frame that these movements came in without much grains and noise. This particular scenario with Sharmeeli was learning curve to me. When she came out of the density to the track there was sudden drip in the shutter speed as the canopy didn't let the light come in from the sky , eyes are much developed then the camera sensor so what they were able to see and identify camera wasn't. The 800 being a good body gave up due to bad buffer 6 frames in CH mode and it starts panting and I was missing the moves and the stares..but neverthless I cannt pick the other body as lens was 600mm on it and the TC was jammed into it so 300 2.8 with D800 was a good combo but it was a spoiled sport for the moment right now.
Finally she was able to find a nallah to make her way back , a nalla which is free from pointed stones and thorns that can cause agony and pain to her soft padded paws. And then she walked like a queen in the open stretch and at a moment it felt she will walk straight into us but then she turned and walked into the hedges and climbed into the dense jungle bidding us good byee..
This particular shot was shot on high ISO of 5000 on D4s with 600mm 1.4x tc resting on a bean bag and gypsy was \\ on the \\ upward terrain...it was simply a jaw biting experience as no one other was able to shoot and witness this action ...she was solely walking for us ...what an evening ...nature do bless ..
“Rufous Treepie” belong to the crow family. Earlier I had seen this bird in West Bengal too. This picture was taken at Ranthambore National Park. This significant bird has no shy and it is fearless. Travellers feed them biscuits, that is totally against nature and thus we are harming ecological chain. Please keep in mind that never ever feed manmade food to wild animals or birds.
