    Default Noor cubs RTR diary Apr-17

    Cubs in playing mood ,under watchful eyes of mother.
    Play with each other teaches them very important aspects of tiger life.
    In each litter, there is likely to be one dominant cub; usually a stronger, larger male (but, occasionally, this can be a female cub too). This cub will lead his ‘pack of siblings and dictate to them when they should sleep, play and eat. This cub will continue to dominate them until they leave their mother to become independent. He will eat more than them and be favoured by the mother. By nature, tiger cubs are playful and rather active. They will pounce on one another and chase blowing grasses or even their mothers tail. They roll around with each other in mock fighting positions and leap through the tall grasses energetically.

    Beautiful playful mood captured. The mother keeping a watchful eye in the background adds to the composition. How long was the sighting? Its normally rare for the mother to have such young cubs in open. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely pose. May be about a one third stop shutter speed increase would have been good. Curious to know which AF point was on the cubs. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
