Hello Manaswi,
superb view of this deer. I like its pose with the eyes and antler so grand and dramatic. The tall grass gives a good graphical presentation.
I like the environmental landscape presented here.

TFS and have a nice day!

Hellow Manaswi,
A nice pose of this chital deer well captured in its natural environment which seems to be quite thick bush.
