Photo story | Into the wilderness of Kaziranga

By Priyanku Chetiapator

Kaziranga, January 08: It was a beautiful evening on the 19th of December at western range of Kaziranga National Park. We sighted a tiger coming through the grassland. Without wasting a second, we were ready and set our camera for the shot, and waited in anticipation. Fingers on the shutter release button and silence all around! Finally, the marvellous beast came out from the grassland. Oh what a moment it was! I was panning the camera continuously and clicking till the tiger hid again behind the grassland. It was really a memorable day for me. After all, I got my dream shot. I am very much thankful to Kaku Saikia da for helping us get the best frame of the tiger. And this year ending well in my journey through this photograph.
