Image take with a Canon 40d

This is Padmini, a stunning Bengal tiger leaping out of her pool to play with her partner Bruno. I love the fact that she only has one paw on the ground in the shot.

The Bengal Tiger (Indian tiger) is the most numerous subspecies of tigers today, perhaps making up to half of the total remaining wild tigers in the world. They are second only to the Amur Tiger in size, in fact many northern Bengal Tigers, in particular the Nepalese Tigers are thought to rival the Amur Tiger in size.

Bengal tigers are threatened by habitat fragmentation, poaching of tigers and their prey and retaliation killings resulting from human-tiger conflict. Pressure on the landscape continues from large scale development from mining, dams and other industry. There are possibly less than 1,300 tigers left in the wild in India. Estimates suggest a further 200 live in Bangladesh, 370 in Nepal, 150 in Western Myanmar and 100 in Bhutan – where it is believed that there are now tigers living at over 4,000m, which was previously thought of as too high for Tigers. This now means that Tigers may come across Snow Leopards in their range – something that until recently wasn’t believed possible.
