they turned black and white

Yet another opportunity to see these beauties in nature. For the love I have for this scenic habitat, although it appears dry, it is a spectacular sight whenever I see a blackbuck. The majesty and the elegance with which they observe you, perhaps! stare at you for staring at it is what makes me touched! Although I colored myself through my eyes seeing these heavenly creatures, I turned absolutely black and white. Some of the jewels I sighted on the day can never go off my memory!

they paired together this time

oh! let me jump away from you!

Staring at you! Elegance personified

Whenever they notice someone around, they stare at you making a good pose!

It was a rare sight for me to see two of them play or fight! 

I absolutely love the way they look! A majestic male blackbuck!

Great black and white photographs.

The staring deer is wonderful because it is asking: what are you doing here?
