Wild life Photographer at work by 

Shot in the wilds of the New Zealand outback !
My daughter Toni took this photograph of me taking a picture of ‘Tigger’ who belongs to the hosts we spent Christmas Day with.
The expression on Tigger’s face is definitely one of sufferance – he was a good subject though and posed placidly for quite a few shots.
Location was Grey Lynn, Auckland, New Zealand.

    That wheel’s fallen of your car again Roy.
    Tigger look’s ready to do that camera of yours an injustice!

    Cousin Bob.

  • Bob, I’ll do my safari’s in the comfort of a 4 X 4 ! I am wary of moggies giving you a swipe when they’ve had enough of you – this one was a pussy cat…ho ho !

    Well.. I am sure you are one of these National Geographic Jungle Troopers
    Thank you for putting your life at risk and showing us this very DANGEROUS creature!
    A FAV

  • Thank you for your kind comments John. I thrive on danger…..! When my wife and I went on a Greek Island cruise in 1997 I was determined that if something happened I would stand behind the bar and go down with the ship
    as any self-respecting ex-merchant seaman would do……lol! Thank you also for the favourite.
