[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Barasingha or Barasinga (Rucervus duvaucelii) is a species of deer, native to India and Nepal. In Assam in the North-East India, Barasingha is traditionally known as Dolhorina similar to its English name (Swamp Deer) as dol in Assamese means swamp. In Central India it is called goinjak (stags) or gaoni (hinds). The most striking feature of a barasingha is its antlers, with 10-14 tines on a mature stag, though some have been known to have up to 20. The name is derived from this and means 12 tined or horned in Hindi.

Due to mindless poaching and habitat destruction they are now found only in Kanha national park, Madhya Pradesh, India where there are approximately 400 of them are remaining.

Beautiful shot, the animal looks magnificent. . . welcome to TN - keep shooting and TFS

Hi Soumyajit,
a nice start on your TN adventure.
It's really nice whit this fine lighting and simple colours.
About the composition: it's a bit tight to the left and it
had been nicer if there had been more room for the legs even if we not can see them. But I like the POV and pose.
Well done.
Welcome to TN,
