Bengal Tiger
(Panthera tigris)

A rare and intimate image of a male Bengal Tiger (Panthera tigris) cooling off in a hidden pool. Taken from the back of an elephant which, by the way, was very intent on eating some nearby grasses and did not stop moving for one single second.

Un retrato intimo y poco usual de un macho adulto de Tigre de Bengala (Panthera tigris) descansando y refrescándose en una charca en la jungla. La foto está tomada desde la grupa de un elefante, que por cierto estaba muy interesado en comerse unas hierbas cercanas y no paró de moverse ni un segundo.
