White tiger. Panthera tigris


A magnificent creature, fully alert and aware of his surroundings. He seemed happy to pose for photographs.

Excellent shot Ellie, glad you were behind glass though
Oh la la!

Tiger is my favorite animal.

This one is great!
I just heard today that the Siberian tiger in our local zoo died of some kind of infection and that they are going to try to get another. I so disagree with having these beautiful creatures caged up, but I suppose with them on the edge of extinction, having some in zoos may well perpetuate the species (very sadly). They are just magnificent.

My fave of the big cats, their sheer size is always a shock in the flesh. A truly beautiful portrait.

Zoo's and captivity, I'm on the fence. I do not like caged animals, but if it helps perpetuate the species, aids survival from extinction and they are well cared for and given adequate space to roam, I feel slightly easier. It's a big thorny issue.

If the alternative is this stupid ape, wiping them out for the thrill of the hunt, or cloning them after they've gone, then I'll build some cages tomorrow.

Soap box, appologies, I love animals and dislike man I'm afraid.

A fabulous photograph, a magnificent animal smile
EJWilkins: Don't worry, I voiced my opinion with the first picture of this series wink
That's a FABOULOUS picture Ellie!
Wonderful image, Ellie. You have captured so much detail through that glass barrier. You must have known I would love this one! (:o)

Wonderfully sharp for a picture taken through glass. Do you use a polarising filter?

A magnificent creature but so sad that he has to be behind glass. An excellent picture for the circumstances.

Wonderful shot. What a handsome creature. Zoos are obviously not ideal but at least they are better than they were, and it is looking increasingly possible that they be be the only habitat left for some species, sadly.
Excellent portrait of this magnificent creature Ellie!
