This year 2019 has been ended with a trip to mangroves in search of Fishing Cats. This threatened species is nocturnal and often found close to human habitat where small pond/lakes exists with fishes but it is difficult to spot and photographed them due to their elusive behaviour.

Flash has not been used, Symmetrical light source has been used to capture this beauty.

Here is my Year End Memories of 2019 Blog post. Have a look at your convenience :)  .


Happy Holiday Season ahead. 

Thanks for your time.
