Portrait of scarred king!
Mystical core gates of tadoba opened after monsoon. Jungle was a huge book of untold chapters. Many untold mysteries were about to be revealed. With lots of excitement and enthusiasm we entered the park to uncover the mysteries. It was our afternoon drive. Air was fresh. We had a vibe that something was going to happen and it was 100% correct. We were greeted by the king himself, Matkasur. He was patrolling his territory, scent marking to let other tigers know of his presence. He was walking too close to us and I was using my new 500 pf prime lens. I had no option but frame his portrait image. This close up of the king reveals that there has been a fight but he was the undefeated king with battle scars on his face.
