The Phantom of the Forest

In an early morning covered by winter mist, a Royal Bengal Tiger from the mangroves of Sunderbans getting into water to cross a channel to resume its daily prowl. I was in a boat traversing the maze of canals and rivers and ditches of the mysterious mangroves in search of the elusive tiger. This was my first frame when eventually we could spot the tiger. It was mist covered and at a distance but with my longest lens I could click his entry into water.
