I took this picture while on a trip to Boskoppie Game Reserve. The 6 Month old cub was asleep on it's back and woke up when I knelt beside it. The curious look on his face when it saw the camera was awesome.

Hello, Jannie. You knelt beside it? How close? Wonderful expression indeed on this beautiful tiger cub. Sharp details and fantastic POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Hi Jannie, welcome to TN. Your opening shot was taken at a nice venue. These cubs are a pleasure to be with. You have to be carefull of "barrel distortion". Its what happens to the photo when you are to close to the subject. See how big its nose looks compared to the rest of the facial details.

Did you see your reflection in the eyes? :)

Well done, I am loking forward to your next post.

Hi Jannie, excellent capture of this little fellow. So cute, and good colours too. Well done,

What an excellent photo! Yes, the nose is a little prominent, but with a tiger cub - who in the world would complain!! :) Beautiful photo for a first submission to TN. Welcome - and keep up the good work and the posting!

Well done Jannie. I like the inquisitive look. Portrays a certain innocence.


Cool shot - great angle on the face and well done

Nice closeup Jannie with sharp detail seen in the eyes. Great POV with good color and impact. Well done.
