The young adult in the making

A tiger cub from Central India watches me through the dense undergrowth. Not far from its mother and 2 siblings yet away from them, this cub sat by itself. Confident yet timid. It acted sure of itself and stayed away from its family but at regular interval checked it they were around. He wasn't used to tourist and still was interested in checking out the species. Scared, he hid in the dense undergrowth, but couldn't resist peeping at us once in a while. He let us approach him only to ran further letting us know his radius of comfort. And we did respect it. This encounter might not suit many photographers but is just my style on an encounter with the big cat where you get to know the individual.
