    His Imperial Majesty's Shoot, Nepal 1911



    Tiger lying in a stream. A tiger lies in a stream, with the ring of elephants in view in the background. The "ring" is a method of hunting peculiar to Nepal. The hunters mounted on elephants form a "ring" and move in on their quarry, which has previously been stalked and enclosed in the area surrounded by the ring. [On the first day of the hunt, 18th December] "... the first tiger [was] shot by His Majesty in mid-air as it was leaping a small stream." Historical record of the Imperial visit to India, 1911, p. 230.
