It was a hot burning afternoon of the summer when we entered the Park in the 4x4 jeep. The anxiety and excitement had no bounds. Then a sudden alarm calls given by the spotted deer, which gives signs of a carnivore around, Un-mistakenly; as the jeep making a deep turn that the driver took and what we saw was unbelievable. The huge, beautiful predator, the King of the jungle was seating amidst the road. I slowly put a bean bag on the open jeep and position my 70-200mm zoom lens to snap away the majestic & elusive animal.

Location: Ranthambohr National Park in the eastern Rajasthan of India
