Hello friends in TE.
This Malayan tiger was captured just it was about to leap. This one is in the captivity of Lye Huat Garden in Napoh, Jitra.
The Malayan tiger (Panthera tigris jacksoni, Malay: Harimau Belang), found in the southern and central parts of the Malay Peninsula, is a subspecies of tiger found in Thailand and Malaysia. Until 2004, it was not considered a subspecies in its own right. The new classification came about after a study by Luo S-J et al. from the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity, part of the U.S. National Cancer Institute.
Recent counts showed there are 600–800 Malayan tigers in the wild, making it the most common tiger subspecies other than the Bengal and perhaps also the Indochinese tigers. It is, nevertheless, still an endangered sub-species.
Thanks for viewing!

Selam Jusni. I didn't think Malaysia had any tigers left in the wild. Considering the rapid pace of deforestation, its days are numbered. plus, add the Chinese "medicine" which uses tiger parts, its fate is sealed. Still, a great shot which makes one thankful that we haven't met the animal on a jungle path! Regards. Klaudio.

Boa tarde Jusni
Very beautiful and impressive this animal. One of the most beautiful in the world.Perfect capture.

Good evening Jusni,
The tigers are doubtless among the most beautiful animals of the Earth, and unfortunately probably in process of extinction because of the cupidity and the stupidity of certain men. I hope that one will be able to save them extinction. The photograph is very spectacular and very realistic. Quality is excellent. Cheer.
Have a good evening

Echoing Klavio (daddo), I would not have expected tigers to exist in Malaysia, but clearly I am wrong. This creature is a beauty, as colorful as it is dynamic. You've done a spectacular job of capturing the moment when he is approaching and threatening. Wonderful results. Congratulations,
AKITA (15125) 2010-11-02 18:29
an amazing figure at decisive moment of the tiger, you took here,
its terrible face and posture are really captured well,
yellow and black striped fur is beautiful so much,
thank you for your wonderful shot,
siolaw (38292) 2010-11-02 20:47
An impressive one here! His expression is also quite unfriendly, which adds to the impact!

Impressive portrait of so beautiful tiger.
Clear and very sharp focus.
Excellent colors and sharpness.
Very powerful image.
Urs (14082) 2010-11-03 0:47
Excellent action shot, and you framed it very nicely so that the zoo environment can almost not be seen. Very good color rendition and sharpness. Well done
Thanks for your critique of my movie billboard shot from Hat Yai. These billboards still can be seen almost everywhere, at least that is the old Thailand.

Il est magnifique ce tigre on voit bien toute sa force qu'il dégage.
Bravo pour ta galery elle est superbe!
JFS (32459) 2010-11-03 11:03
Very good shot of this beautiful cat. You are very brave, your pulse did not trembled at all.
baddori (20119) 2010-11-03 16:50
Una tigre che trova sempre meno spazi vitali e , ostilitŕ come specie.
Una vera cattiveria e insensibilitŕ .
Cosa dire ...per noi famosa nei libri di ragazzi ...rimane la TIGRE DELLA MALESIA ..segno di orza e coraggio
adores (44897) 2010-11-04 18:25
What a pose you got here :)! Really seems he's going to attack you! A very good capture, I like the way you framed him, seems you're face to face!
gunbud (34066) 2010-11-04 19:56
That is not a friendly smile rather a loud roar that could be translated to "Hello Lunch."
Great expression puncuated by that giant paw in the air.
tober (8797) 2010-11-05 5:26
Hello Dear Jusni, that's a horrifying photo with the threatening glance and approach of the tiger towards you. I guess, you were in a safe position while taking the photo.
The quality and sharpness of the photo is spectacular showing all the beauty of the tiger with excellent details. Your title shows that you have good sense of humour:) Best regards, Tolga
Ricx (13495) 2010-11-05 18:32
Hi Jusni, This is a good close up of the tiger-- ( you must have been at a distance where you felt safe).. I am not a person who believes in encapturing wilkd animals for the sake of mans pleasure, but that does not distract from me the quality of this image. well done and well captured. Have a great day Rich
pablominto (53746) 2010-11-05 23:51
Maybe this is the explanation why I hate cats..!
This beast doesn't look or act very friendly hehehe...
Excellent details in the tiger, I can count the hairs in the moustache so there is no handshake here...!
mumek (20202) 2010-11-07 10:49
No wonder why everybody loves your picture. Superb capture of the angry, wild cat with great colours and sharp details. My compliments
delpeoples (57266) 2010-11-10 18:10
Hi usni, this nice tiger doesn;t look like he's too happy with you. I hope there was a good distance and some cages between you both. Excellent action shot! The facial expressions of the tiger says it all - he'd like to invite you to dinner! TFS and I wish you a good evening, Lisa
wgreis (8267) 2010-11-14 10:06
proximity to the subject frightens the viewer, suggesting he was about to attack the photographer.
Sharpness and superb colors.
I like the note too.
Congratulations and hugs.
foozi (7101) 2010-11-15 5:29
this is indeed very frightening. superb capture and the roaring moment is well documented with sounds.
Excellent sharpness and details of the tiger.
I could feel the fear from your shot.
mvdisco (17794) 2010-11-19 17:02

Awesome dynamic shot about the tiger just before leaping. Beautiful eye contact and facial expression, not to mention sharpness and timing. A great moment captured, really an impressive photo. Bravo.
Friendly regards, László
francio64 (39888) 2010-11-20 15:05
confesso che l'immagine fa un pň impressione.
Immagino che il bel "gatto" un pň cresciuto stesse saltando su di te mentre lo fotografavi, vero?
Spero che le misure di protezione erano abbastanza sufficienti, ma penso di si, altrimenti non penso saresti stato in grado di postare questa foto :-)
Well done and TFS!
COSTANTINO (63737) 2010-11-22 11:54

wow ! amazing moment, looks like a chinese tiger in an old paiting or a tatoo getting life. you were very fast to catch it in this marvelous moment. very nice image, with good quality. TFS.
pierrefonds (64848) 2012-01-25 4:43
The vegetation is framing well the tiger. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tiger which is threatening the photographer. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
