On Day 11 of #30days30posts I want to take you back a decade. . . Scarface was just finding his feet in this forest then and like him, so was I. Together we explored the jungle’s little pathways, ancient trees and narrow ravines. He was still shy but after months of keeping my distance, he finally allowed me to get closer to him on a dreary monsoon evening where he sought shelter under the Yellow Teak tree. . . As the cuckoo sang to the falling rain, I struggled with my camera. A basic Nikon D3000 with a 300mm. The light was awfully low and the shutter was as slow as the water that trickled down the leaves of the tree that loomed above us. I managed one sharp image. The quality may not be as good but this memory will forever be etched in my mind. The day Scarface allowed me into his forest. . . #wildlife #wildlifephotography #scarface #shaazjung #leopard #nikonasia #nikonmea #earthcapture #natgeo #natgeowild #love

The Masai called her ‘Macho Kali’. She was the queen of the southern Serengeti and like the distant deeps of the setting skies, burnt a fire in her daunting eyes. . . Can anyone guess what her name means? . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #africa #tanzania #lion #serengeti #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix
There’s a certain mystique about entering the dark continent. A sense of belonging that makes you feel like you’re going home. It truly is an indescribable feeling and I envy the man who hasn’t seen the sun set over these lands, for he is yet to come alive. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #africa #tanzania #lion #serengeti #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix
The shape of this tree, like natures outstretched arm, with her most perfect creation sitting in her palm. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #leopard #kabini #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix

There’s nothing more beautiful than watching the birth of a new sun bring dawn to a new day. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #bbcearth #woodpecker #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix #safariwithshaaz
My garden is often dark, dangerous and with a hint of mystery. It breathes sporadic winds that carry dead leaves from the tree of life as a reminder to all that even the strongest must fall. All but one. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #bbcearth #tiger #kabini #tusker #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix #safariwithshaaz
Feels so good to be back in the city after six months of filming. It’s been an amazing season with @natgeowild , @symbio_studios , @russ_wildlife And @shannon__wild. We’ve experienced magic in this forest and witnessed moments we can’t wait to share with the world on the big screen. It’s not over yet, @naintarajung and I look forward to some time off before heading back into the wilderness to resume filming. . . #lifeisabumpysafari
The world is flat for the old king of the marsh. As far as the eye could see, from the blades of grass under his feet to the distorted silhouettes of wildebeests in the distant heat, everything belonged to him, but it was the night he wanted most. For when the dust settles and the hills of Makoma swallow the sun, he shall rise. The Masai called it the ‘awakening of death’. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikonasia #nikonmea #earthcapture #bbcearth #love #shaazjung #natgeo #natgeowild #earthpix #wildgeography #nakedplanet #serengeti #africa
I’ve travelled to every corner of East Africa in search of the mighty one-tons, only to find one waiting for me back home in Kabini. In our six months of filming for @natgeowild , we encountered him only once. Here’s a glimpse of what’s to come. . . #30days30posts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #natgeowild #earthcapture #bbcearth #elephant #kabini #tusker #love #nikonasia #nikonmea #nakedplanet #earthpix
