Anyone who was South Lakes at the same time as I was when I took this photograph must have though that I was spending my time looking at a crop of long grass...... The Tiger was hiding with his back to me, however, I knew the photograph I wanted and I was sitting waiting for him to turn his face to his left. It took over 40mins to get the right amount of face but for me it was well worth the wait, as well as loads and loads of people lookng over my shoulder and saying... "It knows you are waiting son, I would have gone home ages ago". Good job I stayed then!

Shot from an unusual angle, but it works really well.
