The stare of a Tiger

The stare of a tiger

No words, no photographs, .. nothing can describe the feeling I got when this 4 year old young tiger stared into my eyes at Ranthambore less then 5 feet away, during my safari trip. I never knew I would be able to see him so close, and although I knew they are big cats, his size amazed me. I was not scared, because respect and admiration for this beautiful animal shadowed fear. There is no animal in the world, which will give you this feeling, which is so handsome, and fearful, and graceful and wild, and playful, and ferocious.. like a tiger.


“There is a Tiger inside each of us, we just prefer being a Jackass more often”


PS: Wonder if the Tiger was staring thinking, “hmm, the meat in this dude can feed me for a month!”.

    Great pic anu. That stare could speak a thousand words.

  2. As usual, I have to pay my repsects, more to your write-up than your footwa. The footwa is good, but the writeup is what makes me remember the photo long after loggin off te comp..Kudos dude….3 stars for the footwa, 5 for the writeup….

  3. Thanks Ren, I will email you the other snaps asap. But this one was the best. I got so excited that I started fumbling with the camera settings so could not get the best snaps.

  4. Yeah Rohit, The entire trip was worth only because of the Tiger. There were so many other places we saw which were beautiful, etc, and so many different animals we saw at the safari, but … nothing compares to a Tiger
