Taken whilst hiking alone through Bengal. I was traversing a river even the locals would not dare cross when this fella jumped out on me. He is known as a local maneater, thankfully I managed to get a few shots off with my 5D before wrestling this wild beast to the ground. I managed to beat it to death with my shoe.

Close one!!

Surely you know that to ribbon you need an underwater shot of a tiger. Fantastic image though if one is not too fussy about seeing only half the tiger submerged.

Amazing animals and nice stop motion shot. Tigers have always been one of my favs. Maybe a bit dark though in the face?

real good shot Not too sure about the frame it makes the picture look too dark and doesn't draw the eye to the subject enough
