A few creatures from the Melagiri forests....

On Saturday, I went with fellow volunteers of Kenneth Anderson Nature Society (KANS) to the forests of Uganiyam, to check on four camera traps that have been set there. These cameras have been recording a wealth of wildlife...leopards, tuskers, boars, birds, deer...and I wanted to see Uganiyam, too.

Uganiyam is across the Kaveri, on the Tamil Nadu side, of the river Kaveri. Here are some of the beings we saw....

A wonderfully productive day; the others did all the hard work, while I enjoyed myself thoroughly!
