Tigger Drinking by Silver-Dew-Drop Tigger Drinking by Silver-Dew-Drop
Hot and bothered, Tigger decides to go have a little drink :D

Here's a picture I took of this lovely Tiger at the Washington DC Zoo. I love big cats! The Tiger's markings are so beautiful. They're amazing creatures! I love how, despite their size, when they crouch down, they just look like kittens :aww: :giggle:

Picture is unedited other than playing a bit with the levels and some hues.

All comments welcomed and appreciated! Full view is best!

Wow, the fur looks kind of photoshopped, (not in a bad way of course!) it's so silky and bright! I love this picture, beautiful shot.

Beautiful tiger, eh? :D Ya I only adjusted some levels and hues, otherwise the picture is untouched. I think they are such beautiful creatures and the details of their markings are exquisite! :) Thanks for your comment :)

No problem, I'm a fan of wolves myself, but tigers are a second favorite. The zoo nearby doesn't have any sadly, but this shot is absolutely stunning and was an instant fave.

I love wolves myself, too! :) Yea not all zoos seem to have Tigers - which is a shame, to me a zoo isn't complete w/out them! Once again, thanks for your support and the fav! :hug:

Beautiful shot! And a beautiful cat, too^^

I was at the Milwaukee County Zoo the other day. Unfortunately the tiger there was not drinking or eating, which I had hoped for. But it was stalking a camel, which I thought was pretty interesting :)

It's an interesting picture. A camel and a tiger right above it. I think anyone would believe that they were in the same enclosure.

OMG, how is this even possible???? It's not exactly the same shot, you must've been standing right next to me when you shot this and I shot mine... I'm so sorry! It's just one hell of a coincidence...

Silver-Dew-Drop Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Hehe I know it is stunning the resemblance!

As we talked here: [link] it is simply a coincidence, there were quite a few people also taking photos that day so it could very well be we were standing next to each other :aww:

Don't worry no offense taken, I too fell off my chair when I saw your picture, too! :)

God, hide the other one, please, I just want to die the more I think about it. It was pretty empty in the park that day, wasn't it?

Hid; no worries :)

Ya the Tiger was there licking quite a while, you can see we captured a different "lick" even by the way the water ripples are... and yes you're right I must have been to your left :aww:

Yes that day was sort of empty and all the animals were freakin SLEEPY / Sleeping! :lmao:

Holy, yeah, that's just incredible. You couldn't have been more than what, an arm's length away from me. I know our camera info says we were there on different days, but I really don't think that's possible. I'm going to check mine, see if it's accurate, bet I set it wrong. Freaky, I was talking to someone over at the lion's area a bit after that about DA and recommending that he join... Absolutely weird.
