Cover caption: Javan Rhino Ujung Kulon National Park (UKNP)
Javan rhinos live in impenetrable jungle and they are solitary and reclusive. Not only is it difficult to see them, it also makes photographing them extremely difficult. Stephen Belcher describes the experience, his biggest challenge to date: “It took 28 porters and hours of trekking to reach UKNP. I used a small inflatable canoe to quietly move down the rivers. This paid off with the image on the front cover. It was above 30°C during the time I was photographing and a large insect was biting my right arm, which I couldn't swat off as any movement might have disturbed the rhino”.
