Thanks Doina,Atul.....Ctsetan to capture this guys one need to have lot of patience .One thing I have learned about Kings is that they are Spot lovers.This one would always stick around at one particular place.The best way to get close to them is to crawl .......they have impeccable eyesight..Its pretty tough to get a perfect shot....it took me 2 hours to get a best shot .
