Intense Stare

By s1ngerman
Another of the tiger images captured during one of my many visits to Port Lympne in Kent which currently holds 1 of the 6 remaining subspecies of tiger at Port Lympne. The Amur (or Siberian) tiger is the largest cat in the world with males averaging 260 kg. These are true snow tigers whose habitat is below freezing for several months a year. Amur tigers have been known to kill and eat bears, although typically they hunt boar and deer.
All tiger populations are endangered, some critically. There are probably fewer than 4000 wild tigers left on the planet.
It's not always easy to get the right background and often the image is marred by the visible fencing, as in this case. I would like to be able to use layers to blur the background without affecting the subject, f/5.6 was simply not wide enough.
My ambition is to one day capture these and other big cats in their natural habitat.
