Photographing Elephants specially Tuskers (only male asiatic elephants have tusk and hence referred as tusker) is probably the most exciting things for me as a wildlife photographer. Once you photograph elephants and get close to them frequently & allow them to get close to you then you can never get the same excitement shooting any other animal. The adrenaline rush that a charging elephant generates is beyond compare and can be addictive if you have it frequently. Crazy as it sounds but I miss it when not in elephant country for long. I am sure there are lots who will agree. cheers 🙂
