[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today is very hot sunday [around +7C degrees], so I decided to walk to our local zoo. There wasn't many animals - for most of them temperature is still too low. Not for tigers. This one took short bath in cold water. Tigers are not typical cats - they love water and spend lots of time playing and hunting around rivers.

A lovely shot of this big cat Grzeg.
I think you could have climbed down and lay in front of it to get a nice low POV (and perhaps feed it ;)
Um ... +7 degrees doesn't sound very hot to me.
I guess it is not quite summer there yet though.
The highest recorded temperature in New Zealand was 42.4 degrees Celsius (108.3 degrees Fahrenheit). That was here in the South Island in Marlborough and Canterbury)
Cheers & TFSTT

I'm glad to see this is at a zoo. I couldn't fathom you getting this angle any other way...but it is different in angle than most. Very nice!

Hi Greg. Sounds like you had some sunshine at last we to have had a good few days. I am not to keen on large animal in zoos but i do know its needed . This one looks healthy and fit. You were able to get a good picture with fine detail and natural colours. I just love all of the markings araound the head. wel ldone TFS.

Witaj Grzegorzu
UUU! Jaki piekny kociak. Brodzi w tej wodzie w najlepsze, a przecież nie jest jeszcze cieplo. Kolory, ostrosc i wasy tygrysa sa niezmiernie dobrej jakosci. Bardzo ladny kadr.
Pozdrawiam - Roma

Hello Grzegorz
This shot is simply great !
the details on the face and on the fur of this tiger are amazing
superb colors and lighting
very well done

Hi Greag, a superb capture of this huge cat:) You captured it perfectly from relatively high frontal POV with lovely facial expression -like a tired man:)-. Reflections and shawows on water surface are excellent MF!
TFS and have a nice new week!
