PRAVEEN SIDDANNAVAR – ‘The Chase’

‘The Chase’ This image captures a raw moment in the wild, as a sambar frantically tries to escape a dhole that has followed it into the waters of Bandipur’s largest waterbody, Tavare Katte. Dholes are excellent swimmers, and often hunt their prey by putting their stamina to work… literally running their prey down till it collapses with exhaustion, bleeding, or by drowning. This particular chase lasted all of 25 minutes before the deer succumbed. Praveen Siddannavar, who witnessed and photographed the drama said, “This image clearly reveals the fear of death in the eyes of the deer and confidence in the eye of the dhole about to savour victory.”
