As i was travelling, i had asked Payal, my team-mate to keep a tab on the Gaur kill and the male’s presence. It was observed that the Tiger kept feeding steadily on the kill and hung around for six days, close to it and defended it even from Crows! Only on Day 7, he abandoned the kill and was seen 3 kms away from it. On Day 10 he decided to pay another visit and by this time the kill was fed upon by scavengers and only the head was still at the spot.
These are two pictures i took of the same Tiger a few weeks back. I just cannot stop admiring his sheer symmetry and raw beauty!
TIGER, tiger, burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry? (William Blake)
