The Artless Dodger
Tiger is one of my most favorite animal to be photographed. I go all the way from Canada to Indian forests to capture this majestic beauty. Ranthambhore is another national park in India which I often visit. Filled with majestic tigers. The local people and officials are trying to protect the tigers in whatever way they can and now the tiger population is increasing in a large scale. This particular sub adult tiger was in a hunting mood and we knew that it never hunted alone before. In split of a second he targeted a small spotted deer and chased and got hold. It was the very first kill made by this male sub adult tiger and due to the lack of experience the tiger struggled a lot to kill the deer.
Author: My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an Architect hailing from Kerala, India also known as God’s Own Country, was brought up in Bangalore and later moved to Canada, where I am now settled with my family. I have travelled all round the world for photography which is my passion but not my profession.
The big cats have always been my favorite. To me there is nothing called "perfection" in any photography, every click to me is an experience and the more I click I feel I have learned something new from it, and I give more importance to quality pictures than quantity. I love nature and I can never be bored by staying in nature for long, photography to me is a combination of my love for nature, travel, practice, patience, passion, care, friends and gear; more than anything else, its a blessings of the creator to be able to witness the special moments in nature. My love for photography has made me a Brand Ambassador of the most renounced brand Nikon from 2015 until now for Middle East & Africa.
With my little experience I can say we can learn a lot, when we spend time with the nature and start seeing the life cycle of the tangible living things which belongs to this beautiful world, it can also help us become a better person, who would then understand the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the stability of our eco-system. For the same realization I would like to use this passion to bring the beauty of nature to the common man so that they can start loving and respecting the Mother Nature and stop exploiting it.
