Towards middle of September one starts to get impatient about what is happening in the park since it closed end of June. When it reopens in October what all would have changed, any new Tigers would have come up, some cubs maybe, new dominant males perhaps.
Ranthambhore opened with all prominent resident Tigers showing up on 1st October itself. Kanha, specially Mukki zone gave a good glimpse of two big males, and a Tigress on 2nd October.
The above picture is of a male Tiger (Bheema) in Mukki zone taken by Naren Malik.
