General Douglas Hamilton – Nilgiri Tahr Picture

For the people of High Ranges and the historians of Western Ghats General Douglas Hamilton needs no introduction. A little known fact about the legendary General Douglas Hamilton (8 April 1818 – 20 January 1892) is that the General was also a great illustrator.

I recently came across this wonderful drawing of Nilgiri tahr by him
Since the picture is in the public domain (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_hamilton,_Nilgiri_Tahr.jpg) I am publishing it here for the sake of aficionados. Enjoy
