The King...well almost

Phew! If only looks could kill, i wouldve been a goner long back.

This guy caught me taking photos of his better half and you can just see the aggression in his looks. His ears were up, his eyes staring into me, an open threat, he was almost disgusted with my presence in his backyard. His cold stare, not blinking , not taking me off his sights for even a micro- second ; the message was clear - I was being asked to get out ASAP!

It was simply amazing to shoot tigers at such close range. It is not the first time i am doing this but shooting tigers always gives you a thrill, they set your pulse racing. These are such majestic creatures. They are so beautiful yet dangerous. It is like playing with a knife edge.

They are so huge, you wonder how fast they grew! This guy is all of 24 months old. Its a pity that tigers are being poached for their skin and teeth and what not. How on earth people can kill these lovely animals i dont know.

I wish i could do something to stop it.....


  1. Nice shot maga... Albeit the pic is a bit noisy. Shooting at 800?

  2. yup...this is a cropped image...low light..lots of noise...the disadvantages of not having an slr :(

  3. WOW! A fantastic and lovely photo. This has to be the most beautiful photos I ever have seen! Stunning!

    Have a nice weekend
