Photographer's Note

This picture is of the few remaining patches of rainforest in southern India. Rainforests in South India occur mainly at mid-altitudes (800-1700m), primarily in a series of mountain ranges called the Western Ghats. The mountains are typically parallel to the Arabian sea, a few kilometers to their west and funnel in the monsoon winds in the rainy season. These rainforests are known for exceptional plant and herpetofaunal diversity and endemism and remain the source for several major rivers in the Indian peninsula.

This picture was taken at the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve located at the southern most range in the Western Ghats.
