Great report @Earthian
What a sighting of the two tigers on the road at the end, love the picture of the tiger jumping on to the wall.

@Earthian

Thank you for a wonderful report. I love the tiger rolling on its back - it reminds me of our cat! The sighting on the road was amazing - a .relief that no one was hurt.

I really enjoyed your writing and your photos

Thank you, Tony. It is a cat! and was quite lazy, and obliging!

Thank you, Zim Girl. It was the first time, i had a small lens (50mm) on my camera at the correct time. If i still had the 600mm, i would not have been able to take this one.

No Gagan, i didn't. I wanted to, but myfriend didn't have time. Next time perhaps. Is the tiger population there again healthy?

@Earthian Wow the tigers were dropping out of the jungles for you in such a short trip. and that tiger at the lake was really posing for you. what a sighting. 

 

sorry you missed the commotion of the two tigers interacting (well almost) but you caught it jumping up the wall, which is a different and very interesting perspective. i'm rather stunned that the guys on the motorcycle ignored your guide's warnings but glad the control guys came and no one was hurt.

Belated thanks for an excellent report on a great trip. Some of those sightings are very enviable. I liked the way your driver seemed to be confident enough to refuse your request to move back and this produced that close encounter 'just for you'! I think she was pregnant not feeding cubs. The lazy female sequence is excellent too as was the two tigers on the wall. A most unusual shot indeed.
