A visit to "Steve Irwins" Australia Zoo, with our son Ryan, his wife Lauren and grandson Judd, as well as our god daughter Katie, allowed me to get this amazing photo of one of the tigers, up close and personal.

This was taken just after the tiger was given some milk to drink.

It was also quite a long way away and taken through very thick glass.

Enjoy.....

Shez - what a magnificent beast.

I love the thick crop of whiskers and wonderful pink tongue. From below the nose it could be almost any cat drinking, then above the nose you have these wonderful bold markings and ferocious stare.

Great shot

Whiskers. I can see the keeper's shirt sleeve top left. The image is blurry. Perhaps a more refined crop and pp of some kind (toning/softening/etc) may have rescued this shot, if it was your best one from this 'shoot'. Also appears to be some resizing issues in the whiskers on the right especially (jaggedness).

Wow. Beautiful detail. Nice shot!

He is magnificent. Could do with being a bit sharper and perhaps a little more saturated for colour? Also without the ear being cropped out.
