Bijrani, Corbett National Park. December 2014. We kept hearing the mother's 'uuuuangh', hair raising in it's closeness. Rounding a bend, we cut the engine and waited with bated breath. In the golden mid morning light of a crisp winter day, the 1st sub adult tigress stepped out, settled down, soon to be joined by her sister. They rubbed their cheeks in sibling bonding and held us spelbound in their mesmerizing stare.
