Jhurjhura Tigress with her cubs – A sad end of a beautiful creature

Jhurjhura tigress with her cubs

This image is one of my most cherished moments of this Jhurjhura tigress with her cubs of previous litter in Bandhavgarh National Park, shot in April 2008. (although due to the dust of all the vehicles rushing to see her and her cubs, made for a not so nice image).  These were moments that i was captivated with and in awe when I witnessed how a tigress can be so loving with her cubs. Unfortunately I heard the news that this tigress is now dead and circumstances of her death still not clear. I am saddened not only cause there are so few tigers left in the wild but also as she was one I knew and have so many beautiful memories of.
