Portrait of a living tank ! The Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros is a Vulnerable species and in India, the Jaldapara National Park is one of those last remaining homes of this beautiful mammal. I was on an Elephant back safari and our elephant had went extremely close to the Rhinoceros. With me I just had a telephoto prime lens and hence, could only take a close portrait of the rhino.
