Tiger walking by Ravinss Tiger walking by Ravinss
Tigers! The reason everyone goes to Corbett National Park.
We were there for about 5 days and had 7 tiger sightings, which is pretty cool, because some people end up going to Corbett and not seeing a single tiger. That we were able to shoot as many pictures of the tigers that we did is pretty frickin' cool too.
Anyway... shot from elephant-back, after two nights of no electricity/my laptop being rained on, so I wasn't able to transfer my old pictures... which meant that while I actually wanted to just click pictures in the high-speed burst mode at 6 frames per second... I actually couldn't because I had barely enough space for 40 or so frames spread over 4 or 5 CF cards... so I had to really choose which shots to take, and then while the tiger was still there, and I should have been shooting, I had to quickly review and delete the bad ones to make room.
thankfully, my laptop dried up that night, and the power came back too... so I wasn't in that situation again. :phew:

Amazing! Here kitty kitty kitty! One genre I haven't gotten into yet although I snapped a few of a coyote in Josua Tree without getting my face torn off. I went there to shoot Josua Trees not wildlife. It was neat getting within 20 feet of it, actually it got within 20 feet of me, snapping a few shots without a free ride to the cemetary.
