Another shot of this beautiful young Tigress asserting herself and lying down in the middle of the road backing up all the jeeps, fortunately we were the lead vehicle and had prime spot - which was nice. 

Thanks to those who posted or viewed on the last posting.

Great opportunity and you made the best of it, Steve. What a magnificent young tigress and a really healthy looking specimen! Gorgeous cat and beautiful markings. Love that so expressive face, so sure of herself.

Thanks guys.

John photographing in India's reserves can be very hard, as everyone is jostling for prime position and you cannot go off road, it's worse than the Mara with the amount of jeeps on site, but it's mostly very polite although you do get the occasional ding. Vehicles are often only separated with only inches to spare, but here, I was facing backwards which provided interesting when she was on the move.

Tigers are, I think, the most majestic of 'big cats' Carol, and get there names from the markings, like Star, Arrowhead... which is separate to their T numbers. She was still awaiting hers and I need to find out if she has be allocated one.

Steve, just returned from a wonderful 11 day India safari. Your observations are spot on! I'll likely post a few pics from the trip going forward.

Tadoba, Pench & Kanha. If one loves Tigers, like me, can highly recommend.

Too tied in with Ranthambore, so I'll be interested to see the fruits of these three John.
