This tiger conitnually paced the enclosure standing guard against anyone who might try to enter his domain.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

Gorgeous shot, but I am ambivalent about zoos. I have some zoo shots coming up later in the week, and I never know what to think about the whole zoo thing

@CElliottUK: Know exactly how ya feel - I'll be looking forward to your shots!

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

This is a perfect capture, Jason! Great pose and posture from the big cat and he is looking over at that hot dog youa re carrying...very cool. It is hard to believe that this guy is related to our little calico cat ;-)

@Denny Jump Photo: Thank you very much, Denny! Yeah, I think kitty was wanting a hot dog. LOL It is hard to believe that our beloved cats dogs were domesticated from wild animals, isn't it?

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

You have captured this graceful yet powerful feline beautifully Jason! Bravo! ;-)
