[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been showcasing this beautiful animal for quite some time now.As I've said earlier, the chital is the reason for the survival of the tiger, the tiger's staple food is Chitals, even though they have been known to eat even Crocodiles and snakes.Besides, almost any terrestrial vertibrate can be tiger prey and tigers often take large prey which are more abundant.
An analysis of tiger feces at Kanha National Park and the Jim Corbett National Park showed chital hair in over half of the samples.
Wild boar showed up in none, though we do know that they are also eaten by Tigers, but more often than not, tigers and wild boars do not get into confrontations.

Hi Goldy.
I am amazed with your fine natural picture. Captured scenery and beautifulness of the animal are superb. I like selected DOF and level of sharpness and details of all features of the stag and surroundings. Lights and colours are natural and fine too. Bravo. Well done.

Hi Goldy,

A beautiful animal and a beautiful picture. The Stag is wonderful in the tall grass. Beautiful colors and superb details of the face, horns, and spotted coat. Sad to think he will end up being a tiger's meal.


Hello Goldy,
Beautiful animal you captured very well in these high grasses.
The frame is bit personal and in my very humble opinion a bit distracting.

Hi Goldy.i like a lot this way to show us the stag in the natural environment,excellent colors and details,great shot,my best compliments,Luciano

Dear Goldy,
It's too good a photograph; even this stag is going to adore itself if pasted at JCNP ;)

You really do have some fancy antlered bests there Goldy.Here in the US...this is considered by many to be some sort of manly prize in hunting..My guess is that is not allowed there? Well seen.

Hello Goldy,
An excellent capture of a Chital Stag from a fine POV that is high enough to show him above the long grass and the long horns with good sharpness and exposure.
TFS this beauty,

Splendida cattura, eccellenti POV e composizione con l'ungulato in mezzo all'erba alta e il contatto visivo, ottima nitidezza, molto belli i colori: Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Goldy,

This is a beautiful composition, what a stunning looking Chital Stag, wonderful markings, very impressive pair of antlers, lovely and sharp, my daughter and I were driving into town the other day it was early and the fog was still pretty thick, and much to our surprise we saw a Stag and a deer in a field as we drove past it was an amazing site, but one of those I wish I had my camera moments :(

Cheers Rick :)

Hello Goldy,
It's a great shot my friend.
The fact is I just don't have the darn time lately to do this as I would like to. So I will not post for awhile..
Time for a vacation :)

Hello Goldy, splendid shot of this chital. TFS. Regards,

Hi Goldy,

Personally I don't like the kadre because you have above to less space.
Great pose from the deer.


Hi Bro Goldy, perfectly focused and detailed capture of this beautiful chital my friend. TFS.

Hello Goldy

It feels as if I am stalking up on this deer.Excellent POV.
The focus is sharp with lovely datails.
Nice lighting and colours.
Well done.


Hi Goldy,

The stag is nicely frame by the vegetation. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the animal. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.


I wish we'd seen a tiger, Sir, on this trip!
An outstanding shot!

Belle tenue de camouflage.
Bonne journée.
