19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tiger and its beautiful habitat.

This is the portrait of Sub adult male tiger called as Bahadur. Look at those sal trees which provides shade for this charismatic cat, majestic in every way. This habitat is perfect for this huge tiger who may become the king in the future. Seeing this guy at such close distance was exciting for us. He was resting peacefully under the tree in nice chilly morning at Kanha. The moment we spotted him and his sibling, we decided to stay put at that place and observe him.
