Sambar Deer are on the business end of the food change. They're a tiger favorite along with Chittal (or Spotted) Deer.
Like all the shots from this trip, this was an old film picture that I had re-scanned for this website.
The image quality is now heart-breakingly bad but the animals are no less amazing and beautiful.
But to see such an animal going about its life in a jungle paradise in the middle of a billion person country makes it worth posting.
