Tigers are damn hard to photograph in b&w, their camo is blending with vegetation too much and there is very little of dof with long lenses. This tiger doesn't look too happy, visibly it is hot and he is in need of swim in really cool water. That would also help him with geting rid of the swarm of flies clinging to his smell. Poor tiger.
You can see now, how different perception of other people can be. The sticking out tongue threw me off, and that are no flies but water droplets. I just have completely different impression about the subject.
