- During a very hot Indian summer day, this female tiger was in a pond with another female same age (probably sisters) having a bath, the temperature was about 42-44 degrees Celsius. All this was happening just 5-6 meters away from the open jeep on which I was standing up shooting with a 80-400 mm lens at 370 mm. This is not a cropped image.

The Bengal tiger is the most numerous tiger subspecies. Its populations have been estimated at 1,706–1,909 in India, 440 in Bangladesh, 163–253 in Nepal and 67–81 in Bhutan. Since 2010, it has been classified as an endangered species by the IUCN. The total population is estimated at fewer than 2,500 individuals with a decreasing trend.

  • It wasn’t easy my friend! This female tiger was in a pond with another female same age, having a bath in a very hot Indian summer day, the temprature was about 42-44 degrees Celsius. All this was happening just 5-6 meters away from the open jeep on which I was standing up shooting with a 80-400 mm lens at 370 mm. Pure adrenaline mate!
