great shot! How did you go so close to it Diana?

Cautiously....with a guy in an open jeep....there were plenty of deer and prey, and it had just finished eating, so we sat quietly and it passed around 3 meters from us.! It was the most amazing moment of my life, especially when it stopped and stared straight into my eyes! it is a wild tiger, not in a game park or open zoo.

How good, that it had just finished eating...! :-)

That was my opinion too...it had just eaten the remains of a deer which it had killed, but that was too distant for my lens to catch.

It must have been amazing.! I would have loved to have been there. I saw a lot of wild life in India when I was a kid, as I was born there, but I never had the luck to see a wild tiger!

How interesting...where were you born? I have spent lots of time in India, and love it. I'd love to know.

I was born in South India - Kodaikanal and spent all my school days in Bangalore. I left when I was 17 years old.

The king of the animals, we should hope that the number will increase again! (There were only 250 tigers left in Thailand, at the present the number increased to 700.)

Superb pic. Did you shoot it in the wild?

Yes. At Bandavghar in Madya Pradesh. A large National park. Standing in an open jeep...it walked slowly past...about 3 meters away. I'm glad he was not hungry..
