Beautiful Jungle Cat !

Look at this Beautiful Jungle Cat ('Felis chaus'), sitting so calmly and gazing at recent evening on a little used road of Kanha. We had seen it from some distance and stopped immediately and killed the engine..waited for the Cat to get comfortable before creeping up to get this picture! In the lovely evening light it's coat was glowing and it kept gazing at us for a long time. Look at it's ringed tail, markings on the upper-legs and it's pointed, black-tipped ears..the hall-mark features of a Jungle Cat! I simply love to observe these shy, lesser Cats and rarely get a chance to photograph them from such a close distance! Kanha's meadows offer good chances to sight these amazing Cats.
