Indian Grey Mongoose

One evening we(Mahesh, Vinay & I) decided to head out to our favourite photographing spot in Bangalore, Hessarghatta. Thankfully this day there weren't any other vehicles & photographers, after traveling some distance I spotted a mongoose sitting on a mound at quite some distance. We decided to slowly approach it and get nearer. As we went closer i noticed another tiny body next to the mongoose, it turned out the mother was sitting with not only with one but two babies. :)

Here are two photographs from that day.

Both the images were shot with a Canon EOS 20D and a Canon 600mm F4 L IS USM resting on the car window.

  5. The second picture is really amazing. Love the look of the young one. Lucky that you got them to click, they usually run and hide very fast, right?
    thanks for sharing.
