Tiger snacking underwater

    Newer Older

    Seriously aggressive tiger
    I took this at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom just North of San Francisco.
    I really only went to 6 Flags for the Roller coasters so I only took my Canon S70 compact.
    The image needed a fair bit of cropping in Lightroom, but is essentially real, unaltered and unmodified.
    The Tigers put on a show and get fed treats as a reward.
    The agressive feeding is natural and instinctive.
    Thank goodness for thickened tough safety glass.

      A One-in-a-million shot. Action pure and even I know, that tigers love swimming, I never saw a photo about until now.

      Scary. Better to have a thick glass pane between you and the beast...
