When The Target Is Locked

For years I have visited Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve and seen various tigers. Unfortunately always missed photographing the Rajbehra Family. This June I traveled to Bandhavgarh with a young lot of photographers and wildlife enthusiasts hoping to get the famous 'R Family'. Three drives and no big cats. On the fourth drive we entered Magdhi Zone, third vehicle in the park and there she was, the Rajbehra female cub, sitting on the road. As usual my hands froze for a moment. The tigress (Panthera tigris tigris) then got up and locked her eyes on a spotted deer. She followed the deer and then disappeared.
