I march to a different drummer than ValeryD and Birma.

My favorite is #2.

It seems that I have difficulties to make my mind - therefore both has to be as great! Loving the light in both of these..

At the tiger park in Phuket, Thailand. There are three cardinal rules at the tiger park. Always stand behind the animal, never in front (attack mode), never make a sudden move (lest its instincts kick in) and never stray from the handlers.
I was caught up in taking close up of a sleeping tiger, and see it open eyes through my view finder and the next thing
I realize is that I broke 2/3 rules. No handler within 25 feet, I am standing right in front of the tiger 3 feet away. It took me
all my self control to not run but move slowly. Longest 25 secs. in my life. I almost required a change of undergarments at that moment of realization. :lol:

Great portrait Sury - glad to be able to look at it through the monitor - I bet the real thing was just a bit too real! :)

A case of Crouching Sury, Sleeping Tiger, no doubt ;)

Andy, thank you and LOL on your reference to the movie.
Perhaps, I should use it as a title of the shot. :lol:

Good one Richard. I thought you had one of those trick lenses on that Sony for the selfie. :D
