If only I had a 80-400!!!
Dec 22, 2008

Hey,

Well let me warn you. The photos in this thread are not that great. But believe me, if only I had a 80-400 mm lens.

I spent 3 days at the Nagarhole National park in India, where I had the most unbelievable wildlife experience.

After more than a day and eight hours in the jeep, we heard a sound..a big cat "roar". Immediately turned of the engine....pin drop silence..did we actually hear what we thought..."roar" a rush of blood went to my brain...its here somewhere...but wat is it..tiger..leopard?? Then finally.. after 10 agonising mins, our guide spots this beautiful cat on top of tree some 50 m away... wow.. we spent the next 1 hr just watchin it on top of the tree... but all I had was my D40x and a 55-200 VR...way to short for a good photo...but that memory will be with me forever... If only i had a 80-400!!!

Cheers
Rahul
