This female tiger has been the hero of the whole week in Bandhavgarh National Park, India. She pleasantly stopped for our elephant to approach her. And she is probably the last of the India pictures this year.
Out of respect for the youngest public here, some more explicit pictures (and they can be very explicit) are not presented here. 🙂

Certainly, the tiger picture I am proudest, during this Bandhavgarh & Tadoba photo trip. Tiger (Panthera tigris) Tadoba National Park, India. March 2012.
Red-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus, Vanneau indien) Bandhavgarh National Park, India. March 2012.
This was one of the very first times these young tigers were observable. They are still very playful and Mom has to be patient. Very patient.
Long-tailed Shrike (Lanius schach caniceps, Pie-grièche à longue queue) Lesser Grey Shrike (Lanius minor, Pie-grièche à poitrine rose) Bandhavgarh National Park, India. March 2012. Identification corrected with the valuable help of Claudy Guiot.
I heard that, when a scorpion has very small thin claws, it’s a sure sign that it’s more dangerous or even deadly. This one was looking pretty bad but it did not stop me from dropping to the ground to shoot a picture.
There is more than tigers in India. Tadoba National Park, India. March 2012.
But sometimes, the tiger will be nearer to the photographer and you could obtain a better picture.
