They certainly like to play! Boy are they beautiful. I realize I am a little late in getting my last photos up of the Tigers at the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, FL, but here they are. I went through them and wish I could go back as I sit here at the Tampa Airport.
Just look at how much they enjoy each others company, but also the incredible size of the male vs. the female. One thing to understand is that the male was bred by a guy to be big. I think the guy is an idiot for doing that sort of thing, but nonetheless the big cat is here.
My lens set up was not ideal for this situation. I would do it differently for the next time so that I could eliminate the fence lines, but you get the idea. One of my favorites is when the male yawns. His gaping mouth could engulf the females in one bite. Absolutely incredible.
