  2. Wow…

    This is one super action shot, Takami 🙂

    We get a feel of the motion and the action that you witnessed …

    Seems you are properly using your birthday gift 🙂

    In fact, I have missed quite some action here, and need to do some catching up 🙂

  3. Wow, what an awesome action shot Takami ~ the blur of the chase and the capture of their greatness 🙂 It must have been an amazing sight to see. They seem very happy even though moving so quickly. Wishing you the best in the Lunar New Year!

    • Hello Randall,
      A very Happy New Year to you too! So glad you could stop by and spend a moment with these 2 tigers. They are the same cubs from December 2014 – amazing how time flies! They are 1.5 years this month and grown into beautiful tigresses. It was exciting for me to capture a moment of them in action. So playful, so powerful and so majestic. My husband bought me a super-duper (600mm) zoom lens for my birthday in Dec, and it was my first time trying it out. What a whole new world!

      Hope all is well across the pond in HK, and that you’re not too busy.
      All best,
      Takami 🙂

      • Wow, I wondered if it was those two cubs…but they look so big now ~ time does not wait for anyone 🙂 Wow, you got a 600mm, that is great…you really need to go to Hokkaido and shoot the birds and wildlife up there, it would be perfect! Plus, it is a great place to just chill and enjoy winter 🙂 Happy Belated Birthday, and you can tell your husband my birthday is in May if he is feeling generous 🙂 🙂 🙂 Cheers Takami to a great New Year!

  4. Great action shot, my friend! It’s amazing to me that these are the two tiger babies you photographed when they were so small. I especially love the motion blur—it really conveys the feeling of a chase. Well done! A belated Happy New Year to you and your husband! :))

    • Thank you dear Jeannie ❤ ❤
      Apologies for my late reply, I've been away for the internet these past few weeks. I agree, the "cubs" grow so quickly. I also have to blink to make sure they are indeed the same two small tiger sisters from not so long ago. This month, they turned 1.5 years. Amazing how time flies. It was so exciting to get a shot of them in-action. It was a challenge with the heavier super-duper zoom lens, but a good challenge indeed. All the best to you and yours too :))

  5. Wow! Love this action shot, Takami! Your photo just goes to show how impressively fast and agile and magnificent these wild creatures are! Wonderful photo. 🙂

    • Hello Jeff!
      Thanks so much for stopping by. Thanks to you, I’m trying out different things this year. My husband bought me a Tamron super-duper zoom lens (600mm) as a birthday gift last month, and it’s opened up a whole new world and presented new challenges. Thanks to the telephoto lens, I feel much closer to the animals, while keeping a safe distance away 😉

      こんばんは!お久し振りです^^ご訪問ありがとうございます♡
      先週久々によこはま動物園(ズーラシア)に行って参りました。2014年8月に生まれた2頭のスマトラトラの赤ちゃん達ももう1歳半くらいになり、すっかり「大人」になりました。さすがにネコ科の子だけあって成長は早いですね(笑)
      今年もどうぞ宜しくお願い致します m(__)m
