Wildlife photography is a challenging task. It requires passion, perseverance, skill, patience, time, and of course money.
This portrait was a result of a tiger cub, barely 15 months old, suddenly emerging from the bushes. He was cleaning his mouth with his tongue. In fact, the kill was hidden in the bushes so the cub was quite aggressive and started spraying to mark his territory. The documentation was all the more challenging because this picture depicts the licking and spraying of the aggressive cub while seemingly looking straightway into the camera, as if to suggest that he was posing for the picture.
I use my Nikon D700 and D300s and a whole range of Nikon lenses.
