The Acrobatic Tiger

The Acrobatic Tiger

The Royal Bengal Tiger from the swamps of the "Beautiful Forest" - The Sunderbans. Probably the only place on earth where the tiger considers human as his prey. After tracking his pug marks and crossing signs continuously for 3 days, in one misty wintry morning we caught this male tiger crossing a canal. We followed him in our boat while he was traversing his way through the marsh, canals and the sharp breathing roots of the mangrove. In this frame he was about to jump to cross a small ditch.
