Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid Or: Tiger Shower

Tiger Shower

This week’s challenge calls for something vivid, and I can think of few things better than this Bengal tiger at Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. The three or tour tigers there tended to lounge in the distant shade, ignoring any passersby. One afternoon, however, I happened to catch this one cooling off in the waterfall in its enclosure. It was only for a few seconds, but the sight was something to behold. Large version available here.
