Vol. 57 (2016): Pachyderm

Cover caption: Javan Rhino Ujung Kulon National Park (UKNP): The Javan rhinos live in impenetrable jungle, which makes it very difficult to see them, and as they are solitary and reclusive it makes photographing them even more difficult. It took 28 porters and hours of trekking to reach UKNP. Stephen Belcher describes the experience, his biggest challenge to date: “My most successful method of capturing Javan rhino on camera was using a small inflatable canoe to quietly move down the rivers. This paid off with the image used 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”. © Stephen Belcher 2014
