[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Your burning sharp eyes
spearing through the thick
grove, in the dark, glittered
as a sparkling evening star…
Your sharp aim fixed on thy
prey, with patient you wait,
for a prospective moment to
leap over the unaware beast

Stunning it to death before death.,
feasting it with thy tender litters,
knowing not death wait for you
at the bushes…

Evil poachers with long blades
to bounce over you, as you take your
majestic stroll down the cascade
where thee dwell…with pride.

You kill to live that is thy
nature in thee. Almighty
blessed you so; men kill too,
that is their evil in them,
and He (God) despise so.

Note: White tigers are very rarely found in the wild. In about 100 yeas only 12 white tigers have been seen in the wild in India. They are almost extinct and most of the ones living are in captivity, mostly in zoos. (I shot this at Chennai Zoo)
These are a color morph of any subspecies of tiger whose fur is white or almost white, though it is not a separate subspecies. This coloration is caused by a recessive gene.
