The Jungle Gods: This spectacular scene could well be straight out of the Jungle Book! Corbett’s lush emerald vegetation and water sources are a magnet for the gentle giants. As the photographer waited at a distance from the waterhole, a herd of elephants following its matriarch leader emerged through the thickets just as the silver light pierced through the canopy above. The cane and mango trees along with the delicate ferns beautifully frame the elephants in this quiet, serene moment.
