For any photographer or a wildlife filmmaker, photographing especially a Cat and that too in a unique way gives the photographer enormous pleasure.
Coming to the story behind this image :
As we were having one of the best days in the forest with the most beautiful creatures on the planet,,our driver was little late in reversing the vehicle and we missed the head on sighting so we had only one option and that was to follow her.
As we were following Her, I thought of making an unique image depicting the White spots on the back of the ear followed by stripes. The reason why these species have is, it makes them feel bigger and watchful to a potential predator attacking from the rear. Basically it acts as a defence mechanism, which normally hunt from behind.
And coming to the stripes, it is so fascinating to watch them as it perfectly contrasts the color of the tiger where they are like fingerprints and no two tigers have the same pattern.
