Animals of India

a photo essay by Meeta Gajjar Parker

This monkey is sitting here on the wall of a compound under a tree
escaping the heat of the noonday sun in Ahmedabad. 

A Tiger is peeking up out of the grass in Ranthambore National Park.
Tigers are the main attraction in this part of India.

This bull is looking for water in a fountain
that used to be here in the center of the town of Jaisalmer.

Peacocks are the national bird of India.
This one
is hanging out in the shade of a private residence in Ahmedabad.

Painted elephants such as this one transport people up to the interior
of the Amber Fort in Jaipur.

The ever present cow is a sacred animal in India
A passerby shows this one some affection in Jaisalmer.

These goats, like all the animals freely roaming the country,
are on a constant search for food.  We came across them inside the Jaisalmer Fort.

Camels, which are used for multiple means of transportation throughout the country,
 are a common sight. This one takes tourists on camel safaris
in the Great Thar Desert in Western India


My husband Frank and I enjoy photographing animals because they make excellent subjects.  They pose with intense expression. When you can catch them looking into the lens you feel directly connected to them.  You see their souls looking back at you.  We’ve had wonderful experiences photographing animals all over the world.  If you move slowly into their space and send out friendly vibrations, they will allow you to see who they are.
