A wildlife enthusiast and photographer recently clicked a photograph of a tigress in Corbett tiger reserve which has been eliciting considerable praise. The photograph clicked at the moment the big cat was jumping across a water channel has once again elicited focus on the rich wildlife in Corbett just a few days before the proposed visit of the king and queen of Sweden to Corbett.
Wildlife enthusiast and photographer Deep Rajvar was in Corbett when he managed to capture a striking photograph of a tiger. On November 24, he managed to click the said photograph near the Ramganga river in Dhikala zone of Corbett.
He states, “On that morning I managed to photograph this tigress in action while she was jumping over a channel near the Ramganga river at Dhikala. It was a misty morning and we were heading toward the grassland area in the morning safari. After reaching the site, we heard her growling from the grassland patch. We waited and then she appeared in the grassland. This time, the level of water in the Ramganga is more than it was last year and half of the car road is submerged in water. So, she took a long leap across the car road and disappeared again in grassland.”
It is pertinent to mention here that there are more than 260 tigers in Corbett. Earlier this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also featured in the popular television series Man versus Wild episode shot in Corbett. The total area of Corbett tiger reserve extends to about 1288 square kilometres, spreading over three districts- Pauri, Nainital and Almora.
