Theme Day: Animals


How would like to see this guy peeking out from the branches of a tree?  I wasn't in any real danger.  I took this photo at the Phoenix Zoo with the telephoto lens.  Suddenly the tiger climbed a tree in his compound and starting looking down the people who were looking at him.  Do you think he was sizing us up for an afternoon snack?

They truly are magnificent animals! He is nicely camouflaged if a snack is what he has in mind!

excellent image and he looks like he has energy in his eyes and he does not look too happy at the people though

How I would love to see one in the wild but, like you, only had the chance in zoos. Fantastic capture, Sharon!

What a great shot Sharon, you'd never believe this magnificent animal was in the zoo. Love the big cats best of all!

You were lucky to see this tiger doing something. Many times they are just sleeping when I have been there and very hard to get a look at. I am so glad that they have such a nice enclosure to live in that gives them trees to climb and things to do.
It is a magnificent creature and you go a good picture too.

What a great shot! He does look very intimidating, doesn't he? Love this choice for theme day.

The lion may be the king of the jungle, but this tiger looks very regal.

Teresa said...

beautiful creatures! tigers (I think) are much more interesting to watch, than lions.

Lowell said...

What a superb portrait! It's a fine-looking animal and I think its fine looking at it from behind a very high and very secure fence!

glenda said...

Great shot! I do think he was probaly wishing he could choose his next meal.

Laurie said...

Simply stunning shot, Sharon!

RedPat said...

Probably wanted some privacy!

Jack said...

Your tiger looks very intelligent and calm. Kind of like he rules this neighborhood.

Kathy said...

Arguably my favourite feline. Absolutely gorgeous and so much more regal than mine today!

Regina K said...

Great theme photo Sharon!

Tash said...

Now that's an extremely pretty kitty.

Randy said...

I think he wanted to check your purse for some catnip.

TheChieftess said...

What a handsome cat!!!

Nathalie said...

Proof that you can make some pretty spectacular "wildlife" shots in zoos. Yours could belong in a National Geographic magazine ! :)
