Back from India!

Male Tiger cub…Up close and personal! We were on elephant about 10 feet away from him…. 
Home from India!
A quick post of a run through of over 2,000 images…. Our trip booked through Natural Habitat (Our third trip with them) took us to Delhi,  Singinawa Jungle Lodge in Kanha National Park, and Agra. Our Fantastic Guide, Rashid, was so wonderful!  He provided us with so much information, we could not have asked for a better trip! Here's quick run through of images… More to come, but this is a good place to start. ;-)

We had an amazing time!  I had a hard time selecting pictures the share with you! So, for today a sneak peek at COLOR, and a whole lot of animals!

COLOR!!!!! Inspiration galore!!!
More color shots will be coming soon…. Here's some more animals to enjoy. 

 AWWWWW! Is there anything cuter?

Looking for lunch!

5:30 in the morning: This Leopard almost jumped in front of our car! Lucky for us, he went and sat down just to the side of the road...Easier to see him better!

This felt like the Garden of Eden! Check out all the animals at the watering hole!

Green Parakeet flying around The Red Fort!
All Aboard!
Driving through… Well, that was interesting!
Look who is doing the Hard & Heavy road work?
We rode for an hour through the jungle, by elephant back…. AMAZING!!! That is when we came upon the Tiger (at top)! Must get the pics from my hubby…. He was on the elephant behind us, and has some great pictures to show how close we got to him… !!!
