Weekly Photo Challenge: Wildlife

I know that the picture is blurred, but that’s what happens when you use zoom on a point-and-shoot camera. But that should not take away from the fact that we experienced a close sighting for a full grown Royal Bengal Tiger at the Ranthambore Sanctuary at Sawai Mansingh, Rajashtan, close to Jaipur. I love this shot, brings back many happy and exciting memories!

      he wasn’t as close as he seems to be, or else the picture would be image stabilized…but then again, taking a picture if he were that close would be the last thing on my mind πŸ˜‰
