Sunbathing in the Rain

By tigertimb
My 300th upload, so definitely time for another tiger Smile

When you're native to Siberia, Dartmoor rain is not going to interrupt your sunbathing Wink

Taken last year on our trip to Ben's Zoo (Dartmoor Zoological Park). It bucketed down in the afternoon, meaning we got completely drenched but also had the zoo virtually to ourselves. The tigers didn't seem to mind one bit!

All comments and criticisms very welcome and thankyou to everyone for your feedback on the spiders - some of you being very brave Wink

Naming no names, but some people here might find this less scary than the spiders! A fine portrait.
BTW Sorry I didn't put yesterday's up for Mods, I always forget that button and you can't edit it in later.

Congrats on the 300th!

I can just imagine what that tiger is thinking: "Mmmm...tasty...a smidge of mustard, some roasted garlic on the side...mmmm..."


Absolutely majestic portrait, Tim.

Congratulations from us both on the 300th, Tim, and thanks for displaying something I can cope with. I mean, I know I would only be a couple of mouthfuls for a Siberian tiger; however, the chances of finding one in my bathroom/garden shed/sock drawer are rather less than those of a merciless spider descending unannounced from the bedroom ceiling onto my pillow Wink
A magnificent beast, and an excellent capture.

Thankyou to evreryone for all the great comments Smile

Just spent two hours out with the camera in the dark and the rain, but I think I've now got my shot ready for this months buddy challenge Smile
But as a result I'm a bit behind with my own commenting, so please bare with me.
