Abstract: It was an early morning in March that I found myself watching birds swooping in to catch fish in the large expanse of water in front of me. It was a water body, a thousand acres in size and filled to the brim with water in summer! It was nothing short of a paradise for the myriad insects, amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds and also a few elephants. I could barely see the elephants though, playing and jostling in the mist-engulfed lake as they usually would. The only way I was sure of their presence in the water was by the fresh tracks left behind when they moved into the lake, and the ‘swish-swash’ sounds they made while wading through knee-deep water. My binoculars and camera were of no use and I knew I had to wait till the sun was up and the mist cleared, for me to recognise who these elephants were.
