I really like the way you have captured the action between the two of them, it has fantastic focus really bringing out the detail of the splashes of water. I wish the tigers I see at the zoo were more energetic.

It does make a difference when the tigers are active. This was an odd day, usually they are just lazily flopping around. Thank you for the comment, it is one of my favorite pictures. I really love the water motion as well.

Now I'm jealous. "My" two tiger brothers never have engaged in that kind of play. Maybe they love each other too much, haha!

Lol this was the first time I've seen them act silly towards each other usually it's just a quick swipe and over. I have about 400 pictures of these guys (most are horrible because of people and their rainbow socks which created an ugly glare or just people in general). They were playing soooo much it was awesome. They even tried to get their sister to join in but she was being a priss haha.

Thanks! My 85 hr work weeks are over now. Back to regular 40 hour. Much more manageable. :dance:
