Wildlife Photography in India - Day 11

A quick update on my photo shoot in India. The weather in eastern India is surprising mild and nice. I was closer to the countries of Bhutan and Burma than to New Delhi. Visited Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO site to photograph Indian Rhinos, Elephants and Tigers plus the diverse wildlife there. Came across many different species of birds endemic to the Indian sub continent.

For those who are familiar with traveling in Indian national parks, the terrain is rough and bumpy and extremely dusty. It is very hard on the equipment but the Canon EOS-7D Mk II, EF 100-400mm Series II and EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lens worked quite well. The only fly in the ointment is the EOS-7D Mk II camera sometimes does not AF properly when I add the 1.4x Series III extender.

After three outings a day for a week, I am usually exhausted and have little time or energy to look at the photos. On my way to another part of India to look for Bengal tigers. Will post more updates when possible. In the mean time, follow me on Facebook and Twitter and visit my website to see more photos from my other photo shoots around the globe.
