18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Honey Collector's Mask

A honey collector enters the jungle with a mask tied at the back and a lighted bunch of leaves in Sundarbans. Tigers always tend to attack from behind, thus the mask is worn at the back in an effort to fool the tiger and making it sneak up from the front – and get noticed.
