It was a very hot summer afternoon in Bandhavgarh National Park, and we were on elephants searching for tigers to photograph. All of a sudden on our left side, we heard a little noise below in the bushes. The next moment we saw in front of our eyes, a big mature male tiger crossing the small path we were on, and quickly disappeared in to the bush again on our right side. My adrenaline was so high, but I was prepared. I quickly press the release button and I managed to take 5 shots in the burst mode. This image is one of the good ones.
