Beautiful tiger but I wish photographers would stop photoshopping big cats' eyes to shocking blue! None of the big cats have blue eyes. The closest to blue is the Snow Leopard whose gray tawny eyes sometimes show a little blue green.

Tiger - One of the most beautiful photographs of one of the most beautiful animals I've ever seen. It just makes me want to reach out and throw my arms around this big cat. Kudos to the photographer. Tiger by Mark B, via
