Tiger photography during jungle safari

India has a unique geography, climate and vegetation that supports a dazzling array of wildlife including the king of the beasts, the mighty tiger. The tiger, along with many other animals in India, has historically suffered as the population of the Indian-subcontinent grew, infringing on the natural habitat of this predator. It is true that animals too have expressions. There is no doubt that they can look reflective, intelligent and happy as well as the more usual amusing or alarming. As in many other branches of photography, the secret is often patience.

Most people start in natural history photography as an extension of an existing interest. The big problem is that almost all wildlife is wary, and some of it is dangerous too. It is all too easy to become so obsessed with getting a picture that you fail to notice the Tiger's mate that is stalking you: it may sound melodramatic, but it does happen, specially with scorpions and snakes.

The excellent richness of Indian Wildlife, which compare favorably with African fauna, are perhaps not sufficiently realized. Tiger is the spirit of the Indian jungle. Even his distant roar or an alarm call of some animal announcing his presence, charges the whole environment of the Jungle with excitement. Acute sensitivity, secretiveness and the ability to surprise; untiring perseverance, agility in attack, the tenacity to follow and the strength to overpower are the qualities necessary in a successful predator.

The Tiger possesses them all in extraordinary measure. He is the symbol of India's wilderness and its National Heritage Species. His lithe majesty, powerful muscles rippling under a tawny coat, his symmetry and mesmerizing gaze is a tantalizing beacon to those who want to capture this unmatchable beauty on their lens. Tiger was ruthlessly hunted during the Raj, and in the sixties by the dealers in the fashion trade. Human encroachment upon his habitat and the killing of his prey species further endangered his survival.

Tiger Photographic Safari is an effort to create a public awareness about this endangered species. So come and join the movement, explore and expand your wildlife and nature photography skills and improve the caliber of your images in the Tiger country.
