Wild tiger footage from bandipur India

Filming in India is much different than filming in other countries. The vast geography, the many different terrains, climatic conditions, species along with the different languages spoken by people makes it a big challenge in the field.

While many people are stunned by the beauty and the aura of the tiger and many films and documentaries have been done on tiger in India, not much has happened on other equally important species. That had led me to first document Lion-tailed Macaques, and then Grizzled Giant Squirrels.

To take a break from other activities, I went to bandipur and had a nice time with a tigress and her cubs.

Sharing an ungraded raw footage, just downsized. I had converted this earlier to show how good the new Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 L IS II USM lens was. I had used that lens to handhold and get this footage.
