Elusive wildlife in Nepal

I've been busy and traveling. Can you spot the rhino in the picture below?



That was taken at Bardia National Park in Nepal a few weeks ago. So was the pic below--where's the tiger?


It's in the water, a white dot just right of upward stem in foreground. It's not easy to get to see a tiger in the wild, so we were grateful for this sighting, even if it wasn't on par with our experience in 2009.

For some interesting recent material on eco-tourism in Nepal, start here.  Count me as on the pro-ecotourism side.

Anyway, one merit of being that far away was a sense of liberation from news about Donald Trump. Sadly, though, it looks like future posts will have to return to that deplorable subject.
