One warm evening I was in Kanha National Park, Madhya Pradesh, India, on an organised Tiger tour, when fortunately for me this Tigress crossed the road in front of our open Gypsy vehicle.

It was exciting to see this big cat, not once did it turn its head, but completely ignored our vehicle and its occupants.

And of course this is the answer to the question I posed earlier in "Which animal made these?"

Canon 1D Mk2 with 70 to 200 mm f2.8 zoom lens.

Chewing Gum Rocks.

Caerfai Beach, St Davids, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

Samsung compact camera.

Dropping down from the clifftop path into the secluded Caerfai beach, the sight
of these pink/red rocks spilling onto the sand had me reaching for the camera.

A passing American tourist, also impressed by the sight, joined me and coined the phrase.

Which Way India

Jungle Babblers, NE India.

Canon 20D + 100-400mm lens. Hand Held.

A group of these "7 sisters" were rooting about in the undergrowth, giving off their scolding
calls, before the whole group flew onto a nearby branch.

Being slow to retrieve the camera, 5 flew down leaving these two, obviously undecided, for the shot.
