[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The chital or cheetal (Axis axis),[2] also known as chital deer, spotted deer or axis deer, is a deer which commonly inhabits wooded regions of India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and in small numbers in Pakistan. The chital goes by various names in India, among which include: chital horin in Bengali, thith muwa in Sinhalese, jinke in Kannada, pulli maan in Tamil and Malayalam, jinka in Telugu, phutuki horin in Assamese, haran/harin in Marathi, and hiran in Hindi/Urdu (the latter two derived from harini, the Sanskrit cognate for 'deer'). It is the most common deer species in Indian forests. The name chital comes from the Bengali word chitral (চিত্রল)/chitra (চিত্রা), which means "spotted". The chital is monotypic within the genus Axis, but this genus has also included three species that now are placed in Hyelaphus based on genetic evidence.

Hi Navnith,the pic is a bit noised but it was impossible to make different in this light,an high ISO to take this curious and unique scene with the best details,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Navnith,
This photo is a bit noisy. Perhaps the light was too weak ....
Interesting composition and a rare moment.

The foto is not from great quality but the subject is great. unbelievable what they are able to do. Thanks for showing.

Bonjour Navnith,
Très belle scène de la vie sauvage harmonieusement et habilement restituée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Some noise but this doesn't disturb.
Nice compo.

Hello Navnith,
Great capture of this fine looking buck stretching for the lowest possible morsel that it can reach. Not something you see very often, let alone fortunate enough to get a shot of. Love the color and focus as well as the vertical framing. The exposure looks just about right to me, any more and the white parts of the deer would be washed out. Not sure what caused the noise, but it can easily be removed.
