SPECIAL MENTION: A. CHRISTY WILLIAMS – The Big Bul

SPECIAL MENTION: A. CHRISTY WILLIAMS – Watching an elephant Elephas maximus in the wild is a magnificent experience, but to see two tuskers spar when in musth is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The image was shot while the photographer was on foot between Mohand and Dholkhand, in June 2012, in the Rajaji National Park, Uttarakhand. Keeping a safe distance, he stayed very still as the giants eyed each other, went around in circles, jousted for over half an hour before clashing with bone-crushing sounds. After five minutes of tussling, with dust flying all round, the younger and smaller of the two backed off and ran. Says Williams, “In almost two decades of working with elephants, I have seen them fight about four times but never from such close quarters and on foot.”
