Mara on the Rocks by Lori Deiter

Canvas Prints

Small (11.2" x 8.0")

This is Mara, a beautiful Amur Tiger who was one of the few animals at the Pittsburgh Zoo who didn’t seem to mind the cold. Her natural background was a fence, so I replaced it with snow and rocks from the nearby polar bear den. (Thank you Stephanie for providing the name of this Tiger)

    What a stunning capture this is! Those eyes are staring right at you and you’ve caught the pureness of the snow as a brilliant backdrop! Beautiful!

    This looks so AWESOME!! The fence has been replaced with the polar bear’s background…VERY COOL! By the way…I wonder if that polar bear stopped hitting his head on the door? :o)

    What a calm demeanour Mara has! I love the background you put her in, she is so magnificent, very royal and the contrast of the white snow was perfect against her coloring!
