Photographer's Note

Picture shot at Delhi Zoo on a hot summer afternoon. These White tigers first bathed in the pool inside their enclosure and started playing. This is one of the few shots I took using my 28-80mm lens. Didn't have my telephoto so I couldn't get any closer.

From Wikipedia:

White tigers are Bengal tigers or tigers of mixed Bengal/Amur ancestry with pink noses, white-to-creme coloured fur and black, grey or chocolate-colored stripes. Their eyes are usually blue, but may be green or amber. There are several hundred white tigers worldwide (this number increases annually), all of whom can trace their ancestry back to Mohan, a white Bengal tiger caught in Rewa, India. White Tigers are a mutant form of the orange Bengal tigers.
