    Agree this is better than the previous as the legs are included in full. Overall nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Karan,
    This one is better, as the complete elephant is in the frame. Is this a crop or full frame image?

    We need to respect wildlife and not intrude in to their space. It is becoming so common for photographers to seek charging poses of elephants and other wildlife in most of the PAs. Protected Areas are their last homes.

    Wildlife is put in to so much hardship in this testing season. Elephants are literally toiling to get food and water in this scorching summer while forest fires are taking a toll on their habitats. It is unfair to test them further through these intrusions.

    This intrusion for better charging pictures is becoming the order of the day.

    I agree that one should not deliberately provoke elephants to get charging pictures. In south, especially in bandipur, kabini areas photographers are known to provoke elephants to charge.

    In Corbett, I know of cases where the tourist jeeps knowingly move close to the elephant and press the accelerator to make noise so that the elephant charges.

    In places like Rajaji, the situation is different. The elephants are already stressed due to road, railway, canal cutting across their habitat and huge anthropogenic pressures. Tourism pressure is much lower in scale and impact. Here elephants are known to even make mock charge and full charge without photographers providing a helping hand. Unless the elephants find sufficient space, they are bound to react differently. We need to reconnect our reserves and other protected areas to give them the freedom to follow their traditional migratory paths.

    Nice image Karan. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never seen an Elephant in wild closely but have seen photographers bang bottles on the gypsy doors or make whistling sounds to get different expressions from the Tiger.
