Less than ideal, but it's a Tiger so worth posting. 

Why less than ideal, well it was in the shade, I wanted more to the right, but couldn't, the branch at the waters edge just catches the face, more room at the foot, no way due to rocks and so you just have to make good where you can. OK ISO 10k a breeze for the 1DXMKII and at 24 x 16 it holds up... so providing the image is well exposed nothing to worry about.

I just like the tranquility of the scene and the partial reflection with Krishna's you cub lying there, looking on at us, but totally chilled with the other two cubs near by. 

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

So lovely and relaxed, enjoying a few relatively cool moments in the shade at the water's edge. The reflection is a nice bonus, Steve!

I find this unusual pose very appealing-so relaxed and , well, innocent-looking. A very pretty picture-like the reflection too.
