19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Phantom Stalker

As Matthew’s verse says “Blessed is he that cometh in the name of Lord”. True indeed, those are the first words that struck me when I witnessed this glorified moment. The justice which was provided just by the glance when the queen of the land was walking in her kingdom.The posture, the stature and the royalty might add some mighty jewels to its natural crown but nevertheless even that kind of exposition fails to entice the mighty Lord to break the laws of Sundarban. And coming to aesthetic purity the stripes are the strongest tool for magnetising every single eye in the planet.
