Something in the water got this tigers attention.

While visiting Northern Montana a few years ago, I heard of a rare Amur tiger located at the DDD Game Farm in Kalispell. I was told that the tiger has been featured in movies and in National Geographic Magazine.

As we had been in the rain for several days photographing in the Glacier National Park and the surrounding area, we thought we'd take advantage of the opportunity to do something quite different. Even though the rain returned while we we out, the excitement of photographing this beautiful, rare animal was the highlight of the trip.

I was fortunate and was ready to capture a series as the cat turned its laser focus on something in the water and left the bank to try and capture it. I never saw what the prize was except to say that it had fur as all I could see was a bit hanging out one side of the tiger's mouth.

Needless to say it was exciting and a memory I'll never forget.
