Land of the Unicorn!

The Great Indian One-horned Rhino is the largest beast among Rhinos. Found in a very few places in India (and Nepal), this is a species that has recovered slightly from precarious numbers but are poached for the horn still quite regularly. The demand is from China.

Kaziranga National Park in Assam in East India is a fantastic landscape. The Brahmaputra river floods the park annually. Rhinos, Elephants, Wild Buffalo, Deer, Boar and over 500 species of Birds. 
Was In Kaziranga last weekend…and loved it. Sharing some shots

Hope you like them.

The curse of the prime lens- Rhino horn- uncropped
