"Lions, Tigers, and Bears,Oh My"
















  Regally attired
  Majestic and resplendent
  King of the Jungle?


The title is a little misleading because there are no lions or bears----but lots of tiger shots.  Wow, what a magnificent animal.  I was 3 inches away (thank goodness for that sturdy glass separating us), and saw "up close and personal" what a beautiful animal the tiger is.


  Life is a jungle
 Along its path danger lurks
 Be crouching tiger

I love tigers! It looks like he is laying in your garden and will come soon to you like a cat :) Very beautiful photos!

Valerie said...

Positively gorgeous creatures, the big cats. Glad for your sake, though, that there was glass separating you both! Great captures Mickie.

Jill said...

The close up is fantastic! Well, they all are but I love feeling like I'm almost nose to nose with this beautiful cat!

Carol Blackburn said...

These are awesome photos Mickie and I would love to have the for possible future painting if I may. I see so many tiger paintings of this one stock photo that people do and it is not as beautiful as yours.

The tiger is charming and looks gentle in the first photo. I wonder if he was staring at you taking pictures?

Such a graceful and powerful animal! And if you weren't already thankful for that glass between you and him, that last photo of the yawn (and teeth) would have sealed the deal.
I am always struck by how the tiger's movements remind us of the way our domestic kitties move (and repose).

White tiger is one of four directional animal deities in Japan and China. He is not white but, how magnificent!! I feel the texture of his smooth fur. Beautiful photo.
Best wishes,
