. . . . .

I expect to see tiger or lion in a good pose . . the eyes are staring at me and position to jump on me . . but, I was too early to visit them . .
One of them is laying down on the bench that available for them to take a rest . . and I think he's sleeping

I don't want to wait any longer, since there is a strict rule within their compound for not stopping the car and not open the window . .
Since he's is sleeping, I stop the car and open the window, and shot . .

I was lucky that the others are walking around behind my car, I did not see them . .

Hope you like it for this unusual presentation of the tiger.

Add frame and resize.

Hello Tjutjut:)
Very unusual... upside down ha ha. But as portrait is very good and so nice.

hi tjutjut, this is a great presentation, excellent upside down view with wonderful composition, clarity and colors, i like how the nose is my focal point and perfectly placed in the image,

very well done and very unique perspective, national geographic would be proud!

thanks, scott

Hi Tjutjut,

What a wonderful capture of this Big Cat sleeping - I just love cats in all sizes - but seeing them like this is just great!


Hello Tjutjut,

Fantastic shot, my dear friend! It's a great job!
Congratulations! TFS


Hi Tjutjut,

This is a nice shot of sleeping lion with his face up towards the sky. We dont see that often.

I think the lion left his mouth open to let others know he still is dangerous ;)

About the picture the results are superb and the frame is good one.

Well done and TFS.

With best regards,
Muhammad Usman Ali

that's a wonderfull shot. he's really completely out :D

i love the fact that the focus is on his nose. it also jumps out because it's so bright pink compared to the ground colours of his fur.
