17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brothers in arms

Made this image in Bandhavgarh National Park on a morning safari. We were extremely lucky to spot “Dotty’s” cubs. We knew that the cubs usually visit that talab during a particular time. And we were not disappointed. Two cubs eventually came. They were very relaxed and the siblings started playing on the Sukhi talab.
