I have enjoyed looking at your photos. The deer with the long, curvy horns looked amazing, then I realized it was part of a tree limb that I thought was a horn! I am visiting from Mosaic Monday and am a new follower of your blog. I am looking forward to coming back and enjoying more of your India. Please stop by Still Woods Farmhouse when you have the opportunity. I would love for you to follow my little blog! Have a wonderful week.
Blessings from Still Woods Farmhouse

Lots of variety! We see a lot of deer and, in fact, hunting licenses go on the block today. People must sign up to get them and there are a limited number who will. I suppose that it is best for the herds, but it always makes me a little sad.

Wonderful collage on deer! The first one is very beautiful... I guess they are barking deer.

I didn't know there were so many kinds of deer. I hope to visit India someday.

Barb said...

The ones with the swirly horns look like they belong in a fairy tale - are they the sambar? We have only mule deer here at altitude - they have big ears.

Now who would think of a zoo in India having so many species of deer! My husband loves your country. I have never been, but started to read several books about historical events there and a novel or fiction or two. Fascinating.
