    Congratulations on your first tiger sighting. It is always a memorable moment :-). Nice head turn and eye contact. Instead of cropping, I would have preferred some more space on the left. Seems there was some shake was the jeep engine on, or people moving? Thanks for sharing. Look forward to more tigers.

    Congrats, the first is always a special one. Agree with Mrudul on the shake - either the jeep or the excitement. Lovely eye contact. Good luck for more.

    regards

    Congratulations on your first sighting!

    It will always remain on your memory for a long time. For first image of tiger, you should ideally post the full frame image, how ever it is, so that you remember it well. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice stare. I am very very pleased, Sankar Bhai. There will be no end hereafter. It took 5 years for me during early seventies to see the first tiger in the wild. Tigers were very much nocturnal in those days. Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild

    Thanks for all the comments.....Roopakji I was absolutely silent and went on clicking.There have been moments when I didn't do any thing.I was just watching the guy cool off.....Even if I had shouted it would have been understood(or misunderstood!) by my wife and son only.The other people in the jeep were from Goa!......
