...and looking a bit defiant himself. The lighting on his face is superb. The sun on his ruff is just right. #11562324

There's a sense of mystery in this image, Bob. Nice. #11562373

Michele Peterson 2/13/2017 11:45:38 AM

Amazing. Perfect light, expression, and sharp facial features. I would really like to pet him....but I'll refrain. #11562429

Thank you all! I'd pet him, too, if he were highly sedated/wearing a straight-jacket/and muzzled..... :-) #11562437

Yeah lovely Bob (and good call on the petting :) #11565541

I really like what Mitch had to say and agree with Michele!! I think you captured that sense perfectly. As usual, beautiful! #11565733

Wonderful composition and lighting. Often these big cats are off in a corner and hard to capture. You did a great job. #11565762

Thank you all! The tiger was far enough behind the chainlink fence that a wide (small number) aperture made the links basically disappear..... :-) #11565767

Real cool, like the contrast and expression. #11565913
