      • Many thanks for following me Takami, I’m following you. I’ve reblogged my blog ‘The Tiger’ again to my site, saying everyone should visit your blog because you have such fantastic photos. By the way, are you male or female?

    • Thank you Jet! I agree, they look a little unsure (I love how one of them is facing the opposite direction of his siblings) but with Mama Tiger always nearby, they will be unafraid to go on new adventures! 😀

    • あわせかがみ様☆
      こんにちは!いつもありがとうございます^^
      子トラたちは本当に可愛かったです♡
      Wiki先生によりますと、ホワイトタイガーはインドに生息するベンガルトラの白変種だそうです・・今回の子どもたちは皆オスですので全長270-310 cm(180-258 kg)まで大きくなるようです。どこまで成長するか、楽しみです!

      こんにちは。コメントありがとうございます☆
      表情豊かな子トラたち、見ているだけで癒されます(^^)GW明けに又会いに行きたいと思います。(連休はどこにも行かず、結局家でゆっくりのんびり過ごすことにしました・・)

  1. I love tigers.
    You may not believe it, but this is my fourth attempt to comment on this post. I was starting to think that your blog does not like me!

    • My blog would never ‘reject’ your comments Mr Rajiv 🙂
      I sometimes have problems commenting on blogs too…maybe a technical glitch?
      I’m so happy you enjoyed these cubs. The zoo keeper informed me that ‘white tigers’ are actually Bengal Tigers.

        • It’s one of my dreams to visit your beautiful country someday. Hopefully, while I’m still young… 😀 Have you visited any of the tiger reserves? You’d surely make stunning photographs!

          • I have actually never visited them… I grew up in the hill town of Nainital, which is close to the Corbett Park, but I have never been there.

            India provides a visual and sensory shock!

            You are young! You have time! There are many Japanese people in India. Japan and Korea invest a lot in business here.

    • Thank you very much! I loved watching them romp around, try to bite Mama Tiger’s tail, and well…just being cubs. Their bright blue eyes were full of emotion and mischief 🙂 I thought of you when making the photos. I know you’d definitely have a blast! 😀

      I’m glad I could visit them before the ‘Golden Week’ holidays (coming up this weekend) because I’m sure the zoo would be swamped with huge crowds. I do hope to go again after the holidays when it’s more peaceful.

    • Thank you Jeannie! The cubs + their beautiful mother were shown to the public last week. Big crowds were anticipated, so I avoided the ‘official day’ and went a few days later. What a difference! It was much calmer, and gave me more time to admire the cubs. There were quite a few photographers there with their big lenses, the cubs didn’t seem to mind too much 😀 Wishing you & yours a lovely day too!

  2. Makes me want a baby tiger 😉 Side note- our apple trees are starting to bloom. I have been taking pictures of the process (it takes about 2 weeks to go from red tip to full bloom) You come to mind every time I trot out to the orchard (thinking here about your pictures of the cherry blossoms) DM

    • I wish I could have a baby tiger or lion too! But I know that (alas!) it wouldn’t be practical, they’d much prefer to be together with their Mama. Not to mention, they’d outgrow the tiny apartment so quickly 😀

      How exciting about the apple tree blossoms! Oh, I’ll definitely look forward to it 🙂

    • Yes sir, it is perfect! 🙂

      コメントありがとうございます。とても励みになります!
      Thank you so much for your comment, it’s so encouraging for me.
      I learn many things from your site, an era of history I have no experience in, but willing to learn.

      • I am very happy you are learning from my site. My father always said, “The day I stop learning – Please close the lid.” And believe that too. Our history is important to us.

        • Your father sounds like a very wise man. I also hope to continue learning – to continue challenging what’s considered ‘normal’ – for as long as I live. Hopefully for a long time 🙂
