Saurabh Sawant's Eyeview of the Animal Kingdom
The kiang or Tibetan wild ass lives in extreme conditions in the high altitude arid regions of Ladakh and the Tibetan plateau. Summer is a bountiful time for these animals when the snow melts and fresh grass is found aplenty in the bogs and meadows that are formed in the high-altitude plains. This lone kiang in eastern Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir is feeding in one such bog at 4,500 metres. An extremely crucial for them to prepare for the harsh winter as those who don’t perish unable to withstand the cold temperature and lack of food.
A wide perspective depicts the vastness of these meadows, and the seasonal changes important in a kiang’s life. Image taken with a Canon EOS 6D & 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM.
