Mr Kepala dives for lunch

Here is your Watery Wednesday image.

We continue the Tiger Theme this week with another one of Mr Kepala. To get the action shots of the tigers, the Zoo keepers feed the tigers by tossing whole chickens over the glass and into the pond. It was amazing to see the speed of them as they jumped into the water to get the chickens. It is very unusual for tigers to put there complete head under the water, but they did so on the occasion. However two of the chickens were in the deep part of the pond and the tigers could not get them. The image above shows you Kelapa after trying to get them but failed.

I will post one more image for Thursday and then we will be back to normal b&w landscape for Skywatch Friday.
