Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a subspecies of tiger found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Recent genetic testing has revealed the presence of unique genetic markers, which isolate Sumatran tigers from all mainland subspecies.[2] About 400-500 wild Sumatran tigers were believed to exist in 1998, but their numbers have continued to decline

Dear Thijs,
I do like your portray of this cub VERY MUCH!

The colour of the eyes is fascinating - what a pity, that we human kill everything that is beautiful -one way or another!

Thank you very much for showing this beautiful animal on TrekNature!

I wish you a good week ahead,
Warm Greetings from South Africa

Hi Thijs.
What a charming little tiger you managed to picture. I like this portrait so mush, its delicate sharpness, open aperture and impressive framing. It seems to me WB is not precise bit I am not sure. My kind wishes and TFS.

Hallo THijs,
a beautiful portrait of this little tiger, splendid colours, excellent frontal POV in a very pleasing composition with a fantastic eye contact.
Best regards

Lovely shot of the tiger. The face is well captured, especially the eyes. The green stands out well from the overall warm colouring of the image.


Hi Thijs. Wonderful photo of this lovely baby tiger. POV, DOF and composition are great.
Best regards

Hi Thijs,

Superb capture of this cute Sumatran tiger. The pose is excellent. Sharpness and DOF are excellent as well, the blurred background is very nice.
TFS and have a nice night!
