Tiger Hug

This amazing photograph of a Siberian tiger hugging a tree was taken in the wild with a hidden camera. The camera was set up in the forest and then left to be triggered when the tiger came by.

Sergey Gorshkov’s winning Wildlife Photography of the Year image is called “The Embrace.”

As you can imagine, pictures of these extremely rare tigers are difficult to get and this one has very deservedly won the Wildlife Photography of the Year competition for photographer Sergey Gorshkov.

  1. That’s so cool. I wonder how they knew a tiger was going to show up. Maybe the tiger was scratching his back in the alcove of the trunk?

    It’s no wonder this photo won. Amazing.

    1. Yes, I think the tiger is scratching or just behaving like a really large kitty. 😉
      The original article indicates that this is an area frequented by tigers (a tiger preserve) and there were many trip cameras set, too. But still, the photographer might not have gotten a useable picture. The odds were pretty strongly against it, I’d say.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
