Ranthambore, hailed as one of India's finest wildlife locations, is located near Sawai Madhour township about 100 kms south east of Ajmer in Rajasthan. It was established as a sanctuary in 1959 and included in the very first phase of Project Tiger in 1972. In 1981 Ranthambor was acorded National Park status. The park derives its name from the fort of Ranthambor which sits on a rocky outcrop in the forest. The fort dates back to the 11th century when it was a vital citadel for the control of central India. Though overrun by vegetation, remnants of the summer palaces, temples and guard stones within the fort still remain. Earlier, the hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur, the Park at Ranthambore was once the scene of royal hunting parties.
Today, of course, Ranthambore is world-famous for its tigers and is one of the best places in the country to see these majestic predators in the wild. The tigers can be spotted quite often even during the day, busy in their normal pursuits - especially stalking or hunting and taking care of their young. With the strict measures that have been taken for their conservation, they seem quite accustomed to human activity and are not disturbed by it.

It's incredible to see the indiference of the tiger.
Very good and informative.

The tigers at Ranthambore are probably more photographed than all the politicians of Rajasthan put together.
I just love the composition and also enjoy most the fact that the Tiger is free whereas the people are in a cage for a change..:-)))
Great colors...great pic.

This indifference makes a tiger the emperor of a forest.
Great color, compo.

Bueno Oscar después de tus buenas criticas aquí va la mía ;)
Una buena toma la que aquí nos muestras, pero:
Punto 1, uno de los hombres no esta en pose y esta perdido mirando su cámara
Punto 2, el tigre no esta mirando la cámara
Puntos 3, el segundo plano se ve algo borroso
Punto 4, ya me hubiera gustado a mi sacar esa foto ya que tiene que ser todo un espectáculo ver de cerca un animal así, y mas aun en plena libertad :p
En definitiva una buena perspectiva de esta captura, acompañada de una buena nota.
Buen trabajo ;)

Great shot. I've never seen tiger in the nature. I need to include India to my itinerary.
Thanks for share.

Nice Shot ... but there is some uneasyness which one experiences when one View this Photograph,
something to do with the proportion factor.[tiger and the gypsy]
Anyway the Exicitement of the Guys in the Jeep have been vividely captured.
This Photograph can also be of great value for Gypsy's Ad Campaign.
