Kabini has been a consistently productive wildlife Photo Tour and the sightings in the depths of its nuanced green forests and meditative backwaters have been dramatic and exhilarating in every sense of the words.

Lechwe (Kobus leche)

Great place to see it: Botswana, Africa:

http://www.toehold.in/phototours/botswana-wildlife-photography-tour.php

Inhabiting the floodplains bordering swamps and marshes of Botswana, Zambia, Angola and Democratic Republic of the Congo, the lechwe ranks second among the most aquatic African antelopes. It is known to form leks, or breeding arenas, with a high population density.

The white hue on a lechwes belly gradually turns into a gentle golden-brown on its body, like a bright afternoon morphing into a golden evening, and the furry coat is greasy and water-repellent. This medium-sized antelope has a sturdy, handsome body, with its hindquarters noticeably higher than its forequarters. Because a lechwe has to run for cover in marshy areas if a predator appears, its hooves are aptly designed to suit its wet and soggy habitat, with a distinct elongation. The male lechwe has an almost lyre-shaped pair of ridged horns. It enters water to feed on various aquatic grasses - an area less used by any other herbivore for grazing - and as floodwaters recede, it feeds on the grasses that spring up as an aftermath.

This adorable antelope, lechwe, uses knee-deep water as protection from predators; with its legs covered in a water-repellant substance which allows it to run quite fast in knee-deep water, and is hence our Animal of the Week!

Kirk's Dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii)

Great place to see it: Kenya: http://www.toehold.in/phototours/2017/may/kenya-wildlife-photography-tour.php

http://www.toehold.in/phototours/2017/may/kenya-teenager-camp.php

http://www.toehold.in/phototours/masai-mara-wildlife-photography-tour.php

Found in the bushlands, shrublands and savannahs of Africa, this small antelope is named dik-dik for the alarm call (made by the female), which may alert even the other animals to predators in their vicinity. Its dusty-brown fur helps as camouflage, its hues always in consonance with its surroundings.

While the female dik-dik is larger than the male, the male can make you go awww with this adorable little horn thats most of the time partially concealed by the hair on the crown, an uptight tuft. The black spot at the inside corner of its eyes contains sticky secretion, the preorbital gland, giving the dik-diks countenance more loveliness it can already enchant you with. It is known to insert twigs and grass-stems into this gland while scent-marking its territory. This herbivorous antelope draws water from its food - mostly shoots, fruit, berries and foliage - and this is believed to make drinking unnecessary. While you might be tempted to go near this thing of cuteness and cuddling if and giving peck on its tapered head, you might also want to know that this very feature helps them feed on the leaves between the acacia tree-spines and simultaneously watch out for predators.

Dik-dik is monogamous, and the pairs spend about 64% of their time together. The territorial conflicts between two dik-diks are very rare, and this pacifist antelope is hence our Animal of the Week!

#Iceland is one of the world's most amazing countries and these days a very popular tourist destination. For Landscape photography enthusiasts it is perhaps one of the top destinations where one can spend a few days and visit many picturesque landscapes and grab high-quality frames.

On our maiden winter trip to Iceland, we had a mix-bag of weather. Some days it rained completely while some days it was magical skies and weather. That's how islands can be - very unpredictable I reckon.

One of the highlights of the trips apart from some Northern light sights were the fantastic Ice caves in the south coast of Iceland. It is always a challenge to get rid of too many people in the frame during the peak winter touristy season but then if you wait you do get your opportunities. I intentionally asked my co-skipper to make his presence felt in the frame to add the sense of scale to this huge ice cave that is formed when the ice melts and rivers flow below them. In the winter the ice doesn't melt as much and is the best time to venture inside.

Nilgai (Boselaphus tragocamelus)

Great place to see it: Bharatpur: http://www.toehold.in/phototours/bharatpur-bird-photography-tour.php

Ranthambhore: http://www.toehold.in/phototours/ranthambhore-tiger-photography-tour.php

---

The nilgai or blue bull is the largest Asian antelope. Endemic to India and considered sacred, it has been associated with Indian culture ever since the Vedic period. The male is embellished with classic ebony while the female is brown and lacks the horns.

This animal, known to be active by day and quiet almost round the clock, favours woody plants, grasses and herbs on its plate, and because it is capable of reaching high branches, tends to be farther out of reach of vegetation degradation than some other antelopes and deer that subsist chiefly on surface growth, and is also known to survive for long periods without consuming water, even in the hot months.

For being thus a being of spartan needs and its part in Indian mythology and art, the nilgai is our Animal of the Week!

With the destinations on the itinerary Nameri, a birder's paradise; Kaziranga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and Hoolongapar, a precinct home to seven primates, this Tour was bound to be a fest, but the biodiversity the participants (seen here with Skippers Sachin Rai and Santosh Saligram) exceeded all expectations.

With rare beauties including the coveted white-winged duck, wreathed hornbill and Eurasian wryneck besides a hundred other bird species seen in Nameri, an astounding five tigers capping a marvellous list of avian, mammalian and reptilian species, and a precious troop of stump-tailed macaques accompanying the sight of a hoolock gibbon family, the range of sights, photography opportunities and experiences was astounding.

Now that's a happy bunch of people right there! Participants of the January Kabini Photo Tour led by Toehold Skippers Phillip Ross and Harsha Narasimhamurthy had a delightfully productive time both in terms of sighting and photography.

Three tigers were spotted multiple times during the course of the Tour, beginning with the first two safaris, and one on the last safari. Elephants, wild dogs, gaurs, sambars were seen and photographed among other mammals. A sloth bear quenching its thirst at a water hole was a sighting they turned into digital memories. The elusive Indian pitta was also spotted and seized into sizzling pixel-frames.

On the third safari, which was a boat ride on the calm backwaters of Kabini, the group saw about 15 smooth-coated otters, one of which was seen grabbing a fish and walking on the bank and getting into the water again to consume its prey whole. Osprey, a beautifully-perched grey-headed fishing eagle, and huge flocks of bar-headed geese were the next being in the wild to enchant the group.

If this has gotten you excited and you want to treat yourself to such a great experience, sign up now for our next Leopard Lair Photo Tour to Kabini in February, next month! Hurry!

Toehold Workshops are tangible evidence that learning can be great fun. With the exuberant participation of a lively, interactive group, the Bengaluru Digital Post Processing Workshop mentored by Rajiv Shyamsundar was a tremendous success. Were sure theyll do a more wonderful job than even before behind the camera now rather than before it!

Eurasian Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)

Great place to see it: Ranganathittu Wildlife Sanctuary: http://www.toehold.in/phototours/ranganathittu-nature-photography-masterclass.php

They are as quiet as the colour that enamours them. And if white is made when all seven colours merge in one other to become one, then maybe this quietude contains in its womb many a story.

With its calm mien, this bird has found itself a place in the expression of art, even as early as the 15th century, in a painting called 'The Garden of Earthly Delights.' The Eurasian spoonbill is comely with its all-white body except for its spoon-shaped bill (hence the name) and its dark legs. Most populations of the spoonbill are migratory, but when they build home for themselves, their nest is usually a platform of twigs, sticks and foliage, which is either constructed on the ground, or on islands in lakes and rivers.

And because of how this winged white beauty can bring serenity to the courtyard of your emotionalism, the Eurasian Spoonbill is our Animal of the Week!

An acute love for the wild and intense anticipation hung in the air as the safari vehicle sauntered around the forest, its engine rumbling like a distant cloud thundering in a vivid dream. Until a round and furry form representing feline beauty peeped out of the thicket 20 feet away.

He was a strikingly handsome male tiger, staring deep into the eyes of everyone who looked at him with reverence and overbearing love.

Anticipating a regal walk, Phillip suggested that the vehicle be moved back, and as if on cue, the tiger obliged, walking at first head-on, and then parallel, and finally before them, as though leading his ardent followers to a wondrous paradise that lay yonder, for nearly two kilometres over as many feverish hours.

This rousing amble also saw him walk on the famous Power Line Road, when this smashing portrait was plucked from the garden of dreams to decorate the room of reality.

Today, the Backwater Male is no more, but he has written on peoples hearts deathless chronicles in an eloquent language of grace, power and generosity.

We have two seats left on the January Kabini Tour, from 20 to 22, led by Phillip himself. Join now to witness such moments of undying magic: http://www.toehold.in/phototours/kabini-wildlife-photography-tour.php

A solid foundation is an essential ingredient of any lofty monument, and this is no different in photography, where the fruition of a desired tower of work must start with the reinforcement of sound fundamentals. And that is exactly what Mentor Rajiv Shyamsundar helped this chirpy bunch of enthusiast beginners achieve over the weekend.

Indian Hog Deer (Hyelaphus porcinus)

Great place to see it: Kaziranga National Park (http://www.toehold.in/phototours/kaziranga-wildlife-photography-tour.php)

That eye-white is delightful, but why the sheepish look, you wonder? How about because if you're already a deer in hog clothing, which is what a hog deer is, and just because you're young, you slip into spotted deer costume to masquerade as something that's sure to confuse the wits out of even the above-average human, a little bit of sheepishness is certainly in order to offset all the mischief!

Called so because of their hog-like stance while on the run, hog deer tend to duck under obstacles rather than jump over them, showing a clean white under their short tail.

For thus showing that theres more than one way to deal with lifes challenges, the hog deer is our Animal of the Week!
