Never really been bitten by the tiger bug but may be i am getting there?! June is usually the best time for spotting these majestic beasts that stay close to the few watering holes in the scorching heat. For Ranthambore make sure you have a lower focal length with you because at times a 500mm or 600mm might be too much. Over all i'd recommend the canon 100-400 as your best bet.
"Without parks and outdoor life, all that is best in civilization will be smothered. To save ourselves, to prevent our perishing, to enable us to live at our best and happiest, parks are necessary. Within national parks is room - glorious room - room in which to find ourselves, in which to think and hope, to dream and plan, to rest and resolve."

That pose you take when you're sick of everyone taking your photo.
Leopard cub (about 5 months old) climbing down a tree. We were so lucky and could observe the two cubs and their mother for more than an hour - even 2 times! The mother, who followed later, went down the tree forwards while the cubs preferred to go down backwards. What I love most about this photo are these adorable long eyelashes! 😍🐆

Title: Ostrich Horizon
Photographer: Philip Field
— “In March 2017, I joined the charity African Initiatives to photograph a story on the Maasai women of Northern Tanzania. Our journey to reach Loliondo District at the tip of northern Tanzania started early in Arusha where we were greeted by two Maasai guides with a Land Cruiser. To my delight, they had decided our 8-hour route would take us directly across the plains of the Serengeti.
After 5-hours of driving, with the light dimming and still very much in a land of endless horizons, we found ourselves navigating through a bumpy dip in the terrain where our driver stopped for a convenience break. As we got out to stretch our legs, I spotted a flock of Ostriches springing across the brow of the hill above. Fortunately, my camera with 150-600mm lens was in hand, and I was able to quickly boost up my ISO and capture this long range shot before the flock disappeared 30 seconds later.
Taken with Nikon D810 with Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM S lens at 330mm, ISO 1250, f/10 at 1/1250 sec.”
