Mahout . ( Eye of The Tiger).

By UrbaneMagick
on elephant safari in Chitwan National Park, the elephants from.another group on the elephant safari, were slightly ahead of us in thicker jungle. Suddenly, the elephants started trumpeting loudly, then we heard a low rumble, followed by an almighty roar that filled the whole jungle! Our mahout was wide eyed in terror and immediately jumped off.. This mahout as seen in the photo, just emerged from an area to our right and can be seen weighing up the situation... We proceeded no further.., it was the roar of a Bengal Tiger.

Got a black rhino photo Jeremy. Guide saud in twenty years he'd only seen a tiger four times!! We didn't see it, but the roar literally filled the jungle, very impressive, and set my heart racing.. Very primal!!

An extremely well observed and captured portrait capturing this man at work peering into the undergrowth in search for the ever illusive Tiger.

What a wonderful portrait, most deserving of the awards (sorry, I have already given mine.) By his expression this guy obviously knows exactly what he is doing.
