I've just returned from India - a country whose colour, culture and magnificent wildlife have long influenced my work. Most of my time was spent in the Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh (one of the places which inspired Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book stories).
I was lucky enough to see tigers, monkeys, wild boar, serpent eagles, hornbills, peacocks, turtles, the mongoose, kingfishers, jackals, vultures - so many wonderful animals in a stunning natural landscape. Spending time with the rangers, guides and a local gardener from the village who grew the plants and herbs used as medicine (as the nearest town was over an hours drive away) and learning more about the wildlife, habitats and local customs was fascinating.
See some of my photos of the amazing people, animals, birds and plants that made my visit such an adventure and a fantastic experience.
Still holding out for a leopard! Next time.
