I guess tigress Collarwali can be considered a childhood TV star. She was one of the cubs raised by the tigress documented in the David Attenborough series Spy in the Jungle from 2006. She is now raising another 4 cubs to bring her total to an unheard of 29! What a magnificent animal she is!

Superb image and background details, John. I love your composition with the tigress advancing on the diagonal with her alert pose and forward striding movement, while the inclusion of the habitat sets the scene beautifully. A wonderful shot and definitely a winner for me! Love it!
