So I was in my home state Bihar after a long time and 26th january was approaching (Just an excuse for the next trip)After a varanasi trip in previous month and after exploring the ghats , ancient city, the holy ganga sprirituality and after a way of enlightment i was more interested in a nature trip to be away from crowds , city life So this time i wanted to explore my own state bihar and i came to know just long trending places like rajgir, bodhgaya , patna etc ..

Morning time will give u best view for photography and also there are more chances of getting the wildlife vision cause they roam around more in the morning .2.Keep your warm jackets with you if you are going in winter or even in summer even if its sunlight3.Try not to talk if you actually want to see the rare animals .. this is what i did and the spotted deer ran away without letting me capturing  ..They dont ran away from safari sounds because tgey are habituated to it but they get scared listening humans whispers or conversations .. so just try to avoid if u r actually wildlife enthusiast4.Learn some photography skills in zooming and clicking tge pictures otgerwise you will regret after not able to capture it properly as i m regretting.below is the proof of my bad photogfaphy skill and result of my talks 🙄5.
