Tiger portrait

tiger closeup portrait photo bandhavgarh

shot using nikon d300 + nikkor 200-400 + monopod

Photographed this Young Male tiger called the Patiha male in Bandhavgarh tiger reserve last month on my photo tour. He was such a relaxed guy and so photographer friendly. The fact that he was surrounded by 10 or so vehicles did not bother him at all. I was lucky to be in the place with him facing me directly. The eye contact and pose made the day. After some photographs I just stopped shooting and enjoyed the presence of this magnificent animal vow. It was a great sighting in the evening and after some good time spent with him so close we had to leave him as our evening safari time got close.
