This image was shot in Kabini – Karnataka during Oct 2016 and it was on an evening safari. We were heading back to our resort to rest while hoping to sight good animals the next day. But, all of a sudden, our driver shouted saying “Sir, there is movement, take out your camera. We saw an elephant crossing the road and later realized it was a single tusker (Ekadantha) and then we stopped our vehicle and watched the gentle giant walking and then this rare sight happened. It was reaching out to eat healthy leaves from the tree which was at a height. Then this happened – we saw Ekadantha extending his trunk to reach out. What an amazing sight it was. In south Indian forests, it’s tough to sight animals and take good photographs. I was completely happy to be able to take this image.
