Tiger and Habitat

(closeup tomorrow)

Once you spot something on a safari, you should make clear decisions whether to take a habitat shot or a close up.

In this case I decided to take a habitat shot because the orange light as well as the shades created a good contrast and I was too far to take a close up given the equipment I was using. The lush greenery complemented the photograph. I was patient and my patience was surely awarded when the Tiger looked back.

Later I was able to get some close ups, as the Tiger started walking head on towards our jeep.

Patience, quick decision making and composition are thumb rules to wildlife photography.
