[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Egor, I put some notes about him in a previous photo.
He is a massive and very magnificent male Amur (Siberian) Tiger, that lives at the South Lakes Wildlife Park in The Cumbrian Lake District of England.
I don't really like these Zoo's and wildlife parks but this park really does a lot of hard work for tiger conservation, mainly in Sumatra but also for Amur tigers in Siberia.
One of the highlights of a vist to Egor's compound is feeding time for him and his mate.
The park owners have erected some tall vertical posts and the tiger's food is nailed to the top of these posts.
When Egor and his missus are realeased they storm out of their shelters and climb up the posts to rip the pieces of meat from them.
It is a truly awesome sight.
The grace, power and agility of these amazing creatures is really on display when they are doing this.
The Amur is one of the most endangered species on the planet.
Less than 400 (official figures, so probably inflated) remain alive in the wild state.
If we allow these beautiful tigers to dissappear then we don't deserve to survive either.

Hi Roy.
That gaze is a great shot, unfortunatly the image is out of focus. Just imagine the detail in his face, eyes and whiskers if you had got it pin sharp, that would have made an awesome image.
