DescriptionI am not sure how I feel about adding this image in light of recent events, but for now I will. This beautiful Siberian Tiger named Tatiana was photographed at the San Francisco Zoo. On this particular occasion she and her male companion Tony were constantly playing, not unlike how kittens would play except that these are 500lb tigers.I've always liked this shot of Tatiana jumping out of the water as she chased the other tiger.Tragically Tatiana somehow escaped her enclosure on Christmas day and hurt and killed people at the Zoo. She herself was then killed as well. I don't know much more than that. My sympathy goes out to the families and friends affected by the tragedy.
