The display of the unadulterated power of a full-grown #tiger never fails to provoke awe. In this case, even though the #sambar is more visible, the massive grasping paw of the tiger dominates the frame. Still, naturalist Naresh Singh says it took more than 20 minutes for the cat to take down the deer. And when she successfully did? The kids arrived!
