The first encounter
At 40 degrees plus we had been waiting for the Kitty to give us some glimpse. Couple of Sambhar calls behind us and we see the beauty eying us from behind the tree. It came out close enough to shake hands and literally modeled for one hour exclusively for us. My first proper tiger sighting in the wild and this is what I saw. It gave all possible shots and then got down on a vertical cliff more than 100 feet below, jumped over a stream and sat down on the grass. All the time least bothered about our presence though continuously giving us the glare.
