Species: Bengal Tiger | Location: Satpura, India
I was on safari in India, with the goal of getting good tiger shots. We were in Satpura park, not really looking for tigers, as this park is not known for them. We were the only vehicle in the vicinity when we saw a tigress walking towards us, spray marking as she went. This is one of the images I took. She walked right by our vehicle and I could have touched her as she went by (I didn't). This was the best viewing of the trip, even though we saw eight more tigers in another park. It was early evening, meaning the light was fading and I had to use a higher ISO.

About The Photographer
I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments.
