Mommy and Me

Bright orange and black strips, how hard could that be to spot in the wild? While driving in India's national parks we nearly past a tiger family in plain sight due to the effective camouflage. This photo captures the rare opportunity to see a cub affectionately leaning against its Mother in the wild. There are another two siblings nearby, but are hidden in the grass.
