Keep it coming.
Thanks for the complimets, Elantra. I shot these at Pune's Zoo. I was just about ten feet away from the Tiger. But there was a big ditch and a wall seperating us! I would have hated becoming his lunch!

I always had a fascination towards photography from a young age and I am happy that my passion is yeilding good results!

Coming up shortly, the White 'Tigger'!!!

@ Majic, I am sure you will need more than half an hour, to see my full collection of animals!

Actually the Tiger loved me! But I am not showing you the pictures of him smiling at me! It is too private!

Wow, nice. I have seen these white tigers in two places. One is in Mysore Zoo where they have 3 to 4 of them and other place is Seattle zoo in USA. They are quite a sight to see. And yes, as the board says they are most probably found only in zoos. Keep going C_L

Thanks Aquarian. We were seeing the white Tiger for the first time. I must say that he was really handsome and huge!

@Star, we were stunned when the tortoise snarled at us. I guess I got too close to him! But he posed for me for quite a bit of time later!

She is the lioness at the Tavarekoppa Lion & Tiger safari.
Majestic, very restless and isolated. They have put the Lion and Lioness in seperate areas. Probably the Lady was very un-happy that we interrupped her thoughts.

BTW this snap was taken from the caged vehicle, you can notice the bar on the bottom side of the snap. Yes, Orbit would do. but look at the tounge, it is so clean.

i have more pictures from this trip, probably some other day

let us go back to the man of the moment, Chevy_Lover, over to you.
