Tiger Tiger Burning Bright

So goes the famous poem "The Tiger" by William Blake. I could go on singing the praise of the Tiger- its my favorite animal, and it is the National Animal of my country (India). It is the perfect creation of God.

A splendour and regalia unmatched even by the Lion, a mix of Speed and Strength unfounded in any other living being in the World- a beauty in its ruthless method, a fire in its eyes- the Tiger evokes gasps of admiration and terror alike from all those who see it- maybe because if they do see it eyeball to eyeball (in point blank range), that's the last sight they will ever see I guess.

Anyway, here are some close-up shots of the Tiger in the wild, for us unfortunate souls who could never get to a Tiger so close in our lives (if at all we value them that is).
