Tiger Tiger burning bright! - T24 at Ranthambhore

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright

In the forests of the night,

What immortal hand or eye

Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

 

In what distant deeps or skies

Burnt the fire of thine eyes?

On what wings dare he aspire?

What the hand dare seize the fire?

-- William Blake

 

T24 comes out in the open! After sighting the tiger in the bushes, our jeep driver skillfully maneuvered the vehicle in reverse to an open spot where he knew the tiger would emerge. And presently there was T24 in all his royal majesty!

 

Sighting a tiger in Ranthambhore is an incredible experience. Even our guides say that they get the same adrenaline rush every time they see a tiger - the first time or the thousandth time doesnt matter.

 

These pictures are a part of our journey through Northern Rajasthan and Agra. Sit back and view my Ranthambhore slideshow.
