A female tiger returns…!

Image

About five months ago, I set a Nikon D700 DSLR camera trap at a hot spring deep in the interior of the Western Forest Complex of Thailand. I managed to get some nice shots of a female Indochinese tiger as she walked back and forth, and up and down to the mineral seep. I then moved the D700 to another tree close by for a better capture and composition. When I got to my camera last week and checked my files on the Nikon, I almost fell off the log I was sitting on. There she was again but this time with expression, behavior, focus and exposure perfect. This shot is one of my best all time tiger camera trap images….great success at last at this new location…Enjoy…!

Camera: Nikon D700 full-frame body

Lens: Nikon 35mm manual lens (very old)

Sensor: Snap Shot Sniper SSII (hard-wired)

Case: Pelican 1150

Flashes: Two Nikon SB-28s (hard-wired)

Box: Aluminum ‘elephant proof’ housings for camera, flashes and sensor

Exposure: 1/200th – ƒ5.6 – ISO 400

The first shot...!

That's a stunning pic Bruce. I love the defiant expression! - you can almost feel it through the computer screen.

Stunning, looks to me like she doesn't like the flash.
