A Tiger Daydreams

A guest “kitty” for today – the handsome Baikal (pronounced bay-kal), an elderly male Amur tiger that resides at the Calgary Zoo.  I was walking with a friend in the late winter afternoon sunshine when we paused to watch his regal splendor.  Born in 2001 he is now creeping up on 15 years old and has a bit of arthritis which he gets treatments for.

This day he was dozing off, then snapping to attention, then dozing off…

He spotted something outside the fence line and was alert for this photo.AepCatTigerMaleZooAByc16Jan02.jpg
