Fauna of Periyar

Sambar Deer (Rusa unicolor) grazing in an open field near the Periyar Lake.

Jungle fowl (Gallus sonneratii) landing after being spooked and flying across the river.

Great Hornbill's (Buceros bicornis) silhouette against the cloudy midday sky.

A caterpillar hitchhiking on my rainjacket, hoping to be camouflaged by the zipper.

A dragonfly perches on a stalk of grass in a large patch of reeds in a field.

All the above photographs were taken on a single day during the Bamboo Rafting excursion
