A Trio of Tiger Cubs, India.

Bandhavgarh National Park, India

We spent 14 days of our 2 months in India on safari searching for tigers. My first submission on my new wildlife page is a fairly rare occurance. Guides told us that this was the best sighting of cubs they had seen for 3 years. As their aggressive mother called the cubs to the bushes top left, the three cubs stopped in the open to check out our jeep.

I wish I had had a 600mm f4 mounted at this point, but even so, the heat waves would havce prevented a perfect close up portrait.
