An adult female Bengal Tiger darts through the forest.
Unfortunately, this female was raising her 3 cubs in an area frequented by tourists like me.
Rarely could she go out without hordes or wreckless tourist jeeps literally crashing into each other to see her.
Through the dust and noise of the tourist mob, I got this shot but have always felt horrible about the experience.
What's left of wild tigers is heartbreacking to see even if you are lucky enough to see one at all.
I spend a fortune and years of my life doing this hobby because I love wildlife. Tigers break my heart. I could just cry for their plight.
