20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

A majestic tusker in Yala National Park Sri Lanka name after “Arjuna”, an elite class warrior, an ace archer also skilled in dance and music who was a major character of the Indian epic Mahabharata. I spotted this giant having a mud bath few meters away from the road, but inside forest, during a recent tour in this park, which is famous for leopards.
