This was shot near the Kabini backwaters in Nagarhole National Park, this was in the rainy season so every thing was lush green and it was raining slightly, fortunately the gypsy (a commonly used 4×4 vehicle in indian forest) was covered so i could take these photos in the rain. The Kabini Backwaters is one of the best places to photograph Asiatic elephants. In summers the backwater is the place to be if you want to photograph Indian or Asiatic Elephants. As the water holes shrink inside the forest all the elephants come near the banks of the river kabini. One can often see herds of elephants sometimes in their hundreds.
