A tropical beast

Sumatran tigers are smaller than their Siberian cousins, but they don't seem to have any trouble growing a winter coat.

I am pleased with how the tiger and tree-shadows went together on this one, especially in the second case. The zoo tigers often look like very large housecats, but something about the combination here manages to convey "apex predator", at least to me.
