A Diamond Geezer by Krys Bailey

“A Diamond Geezer” is London slang for a jolly good fellow. This leucistic Bengal Tiger (panthera tigris tigris) is definitely one of those, and so lives up to his name “Diamond”. Note that his leucism or albinoism means that he is lacking his black tiger stripes. He’s seen here cooling off in the tropical temperatures we had a couple of weeks ago.

IOW Zoo, Sandown, Isle of Wight, England.

    Awesome photography Krys. I like the composition and the way his reflection ripples into an abstract portrait.

  • Thanks Richard. :o)
