This was captured during a safari at the Bannerghatta National Park in Bangalore, Karnataka (India). Please do not misunderstand this safari with the great African safaris! Here we go around an area, which has different enclosures for various animals, in an enclosed vehicle. It’s as good as shooting in a zoo! The only difference here is that the people are in a travelling cage and the animals are in the open :))

The vehicle has to pass a set of gates when entering from one enclosure to another. I was sitting near an opening in the side window grill with my camera ready. While passing through one of the gates, I saw the ‘King’ resting in the shades and luckily for me the vehicle stopped with the ‘King’ near my side. I fired in a few shots before the vehicle moved away.
