Astonishing images of a wild tiger have been captured 18 years apart, showing the same animal in two different stages of its life.
The photos were taken by wildlife photographer Steve Winter in India’s Ranthambore National Park. The first photo was taken in 2001, when the tiger was a young cub, and the second was taken in 2019, when the tiger was an adult.
The photos show the incredible transformation of the tiger over the years, and the remarkable resilience of the species. The tiger’s coat has changed from a light orange to a darker shade, and its stripes have become more pronounced.
The photos also show the tiger’s impressive strength and agility. In the first photo, the tiger is seen leaping over a log, while in the second, it is seen walking through a shallow stream.
The photos are a testament to the power of nature and the beauty of wildlife. They also serve as a reminder of the importance of protecting endangered species and preserving their habitats.
