Siberian Tiger 3

By franfoto
The last of this magnificent creature for now taken at 'Dartmoor Zoological Park' here in Devon. It is not a very large park and there are not masses of animals but some are in great settings with a moat of water between them and the public which makes for great photo opportunities. The stars of the park are European Brown Bears, African Lions and Jaguars so if you are ever down our way it is well worth a visit. I have included a close crop "dentist's eye view" of it's mouth- just watch you don't fall in!
Large view reveals so much more, time permitting.
Thanks for all your comments and clicks on my last one. Glad you enjoyed it.
Have a good weekend.
Fran

f/8 1/320sec ISO100 Focal length 200mm - Mono pod support.
