A murder of crows drifted into the forest. Their clairvoyant abilities often sensed an arrival. Silhouettes of monkeys gathered on the outstretched arm of a tall teek tree as the steady hum of crickets swallowed the last birdsong. Darkness neared and as the crows took flight, the nights faithful appeared. . . #shaazjung #nikonasia #nikonindiaofficial #wildlife #wildlifephotography #blackpanther #kabini #earthpix #earthcapture #bbctravel #love #nature
Many many moons ago, one of the first tigers I ever tracked sat beside a little rivulet. She had two little cubs, a male and a female and little did I know they would both change my life forever. The male grew to be one of the most iconic tigers this jungle had ever seen. Euco, also known as the backwater Male, was a phenomenon. It’s been four years since his passing and the forest is still searching for balance. The female, a carbon copy of him, grew to be the epitome of beauty. She holds the territory her mother once did of an area called Balle. I’ve seen many tigers ghost through this forest but none as deftly as Bella. Her movement reminds me of the forming of rain clouds that slowly yet inevitably brought change. We knew the rain was imminent, but its patterns were unpredictable. Bella’s incalculable ways made her a nightmare to track, but it was this unpredictability that led to her success, making her one of the most skilful hunters of our time. Together we hold memories that run as deep as the roots of the old banyan that she often resides under. I’ve tracked her for nearly a decade now and she is undoubtedly my most favourite tigress. . . None of this was ever about photography, it’s about love, life and history. . . #shaazjung #nikonasia #nikonindia #wildlife #wildlifephotography #tiger #earthcapture #earthpix #love #kabini #natgeo #natgeowild #bbctravel
As a tracker who specialises in studying leopards in dense forests, the joy of finding that perfect opening in the endless canopy, is unsurpassable. When she opens her arms and her layers of leaves part, look for the most bent branch, for in this forest, the most contorted trees often carry the most elusive leopards. . . #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikonasia #nikonindia #earthcapture #earthpix #bbctravel #shaazjung #natgeowild #love #leopard #kabini

For those of you who don’t know, my sister Zoha Jung runs the most amazing rescue centre for equines called @thebackwatersanctuary .. The sanctuary is home to abandoned and mistreated horses and donkeys and with a growing number of rescues, they could do with more love and support. So follow them, share the love and help the needy.

In the jungle, who is the bravest of them all? Is it the regal tiger, nonchalant in his manner, or the ever adaptive leopard, forever fearless in his ever changing world? Neither, for the Indian Dhole (wild dog), unperturbed in the midst of chaos, was the true king. These are the most intelligent and ruthless animals the jungle has to offer and on a warm afternoon, we watched a pack of dholes torment a herd of elephants. This image to me portrays their unruffled nature best as their focus lay on a herd of deer rather than the raging giants. . .
