    Look who came out of the woodwork and made a bee-line straight towards this rejected rat I was throwing out. Not a great photo, hence the lack of a watermark, but an awesome experience no less. Thought it was worth sharing. Beautiful animal and clearly not fussy in regards to food. :)

    Great picture! You guys have some very beautiful Tigers over there. Maybe I'm a traitor and I do love the Melbourne/Victorian Tigers I grew up with but I reckon yours are prettier.

    I daresay, "the grass is greener on the other side". It's nice to see a live one in any case.

    I saw some really nice ones in Esperance, one while playing golf, and one at the wind turbines.

    I saw some lovely individuals (although I say that about all wild specimens) on the margins of a wetland in Albany. There was a high population density in that particular area. Unfortunately the undergrowth was just too thick for me to capture any decent photos of them. :( Another time perhaps.

    as soon as I saw the one at the wind farm we turned back, really hard to spot them in the thick shrubs and very narrow path.
