When I saw “large subject” in the title of this challenge I immediately thought of these photographs I took on a lovely sunny day in Dublin Zoo, a few years ago. I was heartbroken to realise that the originals were among the items lost when my laptop died, but thankfully I had them posted on Facebook.
This is an Amur Tiger (Siberian Tiger) which is not just a big cat, it is the largest tiger type. The tiger habitat in Dublin Zoo has a glass wall and this sedate-looking beauty held our attention while his (her?) friend managed to startle everybody by sneaking up and crossing the wall in front of us.
This last pic is a bit blurred because the tiger came so close I almost dropped my camera. The spatters on the picture are drops of water on the glass between us, he had been for a swim and decided to have a good shake, right in front of everybody.
