This beautiful Amur Tiger was one of the few animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo who didn’t seem to mind the cold. I was determined to get a photo of this girl (Mara) while other Redbubble photographers were chasing Robins (BigD)!!! It was so cold even the Polar Bears were banging their doors to get inside.

    This kitty’s name is Mara. The zookeeper told me that they know her by the heart shape above her right eye. You can see it rather clearly in this shot of her! Well done!

  • Thank you so much Stephanie! I appreciate your kind comment and information!
