Thanks for the welcome back and the kind comments and votes on the Courting grebes - I apologise for their quality but as said grab shots and it was all over in seconds.
Today are two shots of the Amur tiger I took at the big cat shoot the wife kindly gave me for my 70th birthday. I hope you enjoy them as I did taking them.

Two lovely images with great colour and detail. I especially like V1. He/she looks so dignified and sunk deep in thought.

I see we are of the exact same vintage, Ray: you have managed a more exotic shoot though than I ever manage, and so well captured at that.
Very fine captures of this magnificent big cat.

Great shots Ray. If you love wildlife have a look at the Wingham Wildlife Park - their photo days are very good value and not too far from Smarden. You get to go in the enclosures with some of the animals, great fun. Grin
