Here is a better picture of this big and strong animal. However that one was captive whereas this one was wild.


We were on a hike. The group was mixed. Had children and older people. The kids were running ahead. Nila was in that group and she was pretty excited that she was the first to spot this big animal with a few companions. They were blocking the path somewhat. There was a bit of nervousness in the group.


We just stood quietly and watched. The animals went away after a few minutes. Just melted into the forest. I had just enough time for a few shots after making sure things were going to be okay. This one was wild but behaved gentle.


Read more about this gentle giant in the other page.


EDIT: On reading this, Nila says that perhaps one more kid with her also saw it at the same time. A bit like who climbed Everest first? Tensing or Hillary !
