At the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park in Vizag, Udayan was intrigued by this reclusive Tortoise who seemed to have forged a great bond of friendship with the Squirrel. On closer inspection, the truth was revealed. This was a Tortoise made of cement intended for smaller live turtles to take shelter beneath it. Alas! This piggy-back ride would not ferry the squirrel anywhere.

01. Won the 1st place in Weekly Travel Photography Competition (Sub: Zoo) of Lonely Planet blog (lonelyplanetcommunity.tumblr.com) & published in the blog as winning image and received a LP Book of Udayan’s choice (he selected The Food Book for his wife this time). [Link: goo.gl/zvjSM6]

Crocodile skin is highly valued in the fashion circuits. These window shopping young crocs seem to know little of the future that awaits them in the city, a mere shadow of their former glory.

The wild does not conform to any measurement, however, this tiger atop a milestone demarcating human territory, sits as if inspecting the land we have taken away from him. Paradoxically, with him moving into the city, his roles reversed. As a hunter in the wild, he is hidden while the hunted is exposed. Here, the hunter becomes the hunted and therefore the spotlight is on him.

Dark ominous clouds are rather symbolic of the future that awaits this displaced pachyderm contradictory to the mood it seems to be in as it enters the city.
