Tiger, Brahmaputra Valley

Photograph by Sandesh Kadur

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

A tiger's stripes leave it well camouflaged among tall grass in India's Brahmaputra Valley. Hunted to death in much of the rest of the country, the valley and Kaziranga National Park provide shelter.

I think the reason tigers look directly at the camera is that they are sizing up what's behind it. :)

Both today's photo and yesterday's, the Lion of Serengeti, show how wonderfully these animals blend in to their surroundings. Amazing camouflage.

This picture kind of made me dizzy when I first looked at it. Very cool.

What is it with tigers looking directly at the camera?  Other big cats look in the general direction when they hear a camera, or ignore it altogether.  Tigers, however, look right at the camera as if they're evaluating the f-stop, shutter speed, film choice, and other technical aspects.

Absolutely stunning. I'm so happy to see the last 2 photos of the day come from the big cat department. He looks like he's about to vanish into the landscape. Great timing.

stunning,, yeah much in the areas rampant poaching is commonly practiced but also the latest census reveal small but pretty impressive increment in their no. around 300 from the last 3 years. so, its good to see the tiger legacy moving forward ..
