Thanks for the nice comments. This was shot on an abandoned airfield in Minnesota; the tiger was loose but was being controlled by two trainers. One trainer was in the wood line, he would throw pieces of chicken at us so the tiger would charge at us and the second trainer was in front of us to make sure the tiger stopped at the chicken.

Absolutely fantastic!!!! This deserves to be a winner. I grew up in Minnesota and recognize the snow - but I don't remember seeing that many tigers running around where I grew up:)
