[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was found in the riverbed of Torsha river that spates only during the monsooons. The river separates the two bits of
Jaldapara Wildlife Sactuary

namely kunjanagar & chilapata. This one was near chilapata. The shot was made from a car that was standing on the bank of the river (with engines running). Even though the rhinos are a little hard of optics they are above par with their olfactory and auditory nerves. It sensed us and trained its battle stations (mind the blowpipe eardrum & the unicorn) on us. We left (or fled if you wish) the scene after a couple of shots.

Hello Subhayan,
Great sighting. I presume this is not something one sees everyday. Good POV with great eye contact and clear sharp detail. Well done and tfs. Have a wonderful week.

Hi Subhayan
incredible animal indeed
wonderful light, maybe placing the rhino a bit out of the center to the left would even improve the compo

Hi Subhayan,

magnificent specimen of Indian Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis), photographed from an excellent POV and, given the colours of environment, even well standing out from the BG.Great "capture", in view of the rarity of the subject.Wanting to be picky, due to a not optimal light, the animal's back is slightly OE, but from the look and from the stance of rhino it's possible to understand it didn't really want to be photographed.Very interesting.



Hi Subhayan,
Good capture of this beautiful rhino ,good focus , great light and shadows .

Nice closeup of the rhino.
