15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cute and Curious

Tiger is one of my most favorite animal to be photographed. I go all the way from Canada to Indian forests to capture this majestic beauty. One of my friend informed me about one of the tiger in Bandhavgarh national park delivered two cubs. I wanted to capture those cute cubs moments and I packed my bag and traveled to India. The second day we found the tigress lying down and after some time the two cute cubs came out from the den and started feeding milk. It was a blissful sighting and moment. The guide informed me that its the first time the cubs are sighting humans. And I could see that in their eyes. They both were curiously looking at us.
