Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris)

Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris)

Differently from other safaris, this tiger came out to us spontaneously, introduced by the alarm-calls of the langurs. Thanks to the monkeys, our driver decided wisely to go back on our route and we found the tiger in front of us... An unforgettable excitation took all of us, local guides included, then everybody went on a frenzy with photography and a crazy thing happened to me: my camera suddenly stopped working and I had to change its bactery right after this picture, missing some unrepeatable poses of the tiger....I managed to have my Nikon functioning again in a few seconds...The following pictures is what is left of that exciting experience.
