This is a shot of one of three white tigers living at my local zoo here in Singapore. They were in the news in November 2008 after they killed a deranged man who jumped into their enclosure. This is a picture of one of the two females. I've visited several times in the past few weeks and she is usually lounging around whenever I stop by-- letting the male pace around and keep watch for intruders. This time, however, she caught sight of me, started growling, and made me quite happy that there was a moat separating us.

I took this photograph in Phoenix Zoo, Arizona, USA on 28th March 2010.
This is from my second wildlife photography album. I was testing out my new Canon EOS 7D! I was shooting in continuous mode and the tiger looked at me for just a fraction of a second, when it heard the shutter sound!

I took this shot yesterday at the zoo in Wuppertal, Germany. As there were only a few people, I could climb around the open-air enclosure a bit to look for the best shooting position. Although colour and focus are ok, it's the intensity of the eyes I like most about the picture.
