Striped hyena by Ajay Parmar, 2012 People's Choice Award winner

Ajay's "long wait" for a photo opportunity one morning in Velavadar Blackbuck National Park (located in Gujarat, India) was rewarded when a striped hyena came strolling down the road. Hyenas are nocturnal, and photographing one in such strong daylight is rare. "This was one of the best days in my wildlife photography."
