The Image of the Month for August 2014 goes to Vipin Sharma's image of a royal bengal tigress nursing her young.
I loved the rare and serene moment. Congratulations Vipin!

Details of the image by him:
A very emotional moment , mother feeding her cub in Ranthambore. A heart warming moment.
A jaws which can rip apart any living body in few second can be so caring for her cubs; can be witnessed here.
At a time mother can be a ferocious predator , a protector for her cubs but for the cubs her arms are the safest place in the world.

Congratulations and a well deserved honor. A Tiger sighting is always special - especially for us in the South and capturing such an intimate moment of the most fearsome predator is an achievement in itself.

Just checked in and Wow! Notice how the tigress is keeping a watchful eye on the photographer, obviously as her cubs are with her. Good shot, Vipin.
