I recently shot a wedding at the foothills of the annaikatti hills near coimbatore. The morning after the wedding, I had a couple of hours to kill and took a stroll around the foothills. There were a lot of shy peahen, fairly large herds of deer and lots of other bird life too. I have heard of considerable elephant and leopard activity here though I didn't experience any that time.
Here are a few images from that quick stroll.
