Elephant Herd Crossing
Watch the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpOoijwfFVs
A herd of about 18 gentle giants including sub-adults & babies crossed the road in complete silence. The babies were protected & surrounded by adults & sub-adults, accompanied by the matriarch of the herd. It was just a matter of luck & timing that we happened to witness this awesome sighting, a minute late & we would have missed this wonderful moment. The whole crossing lasted just over a minute & the herd disappeared in the woods.

Greater One Horned Rhinoceros @ Manas
Watch the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WKYbmK5T4U
More than 100 Greater One-Horned Rhinoceros popularly known as Rhinos used to live in Manas National Park but the entire population was wiped off by poachers during the peak of insurgency between late 1980s & early 1990s . This prompted the World Heritage Committee to put the protected area in World Heritage Site in Danger List in 1992. However through the rhino introduction programme IRV2020 Rhinos were translocated from Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary and Kaziranga National Park to Manas National Park between the years 2008 and 2012. This was one of the criteria for which Manas got back the World Heritage Site tag in 2011. Currently the park’s rhino population is around 37 & growing.

The Sultan : Whenever we roam around the Himalayan Foothills we hear the five note Chwik-chwik-chwik-chwik-chwik call of the gorgeous "Sultan Tit". But they generally stick to the upper canopy. This one was the curious type it seems , came close to check me and I gratefully captured the image
