It's always a joy

to see any of the Tigers. As you say, wonderful vibrant colours. I really like the way you've captured the 'pearly' eggs.

Thanks Sue

It was just by chance that it was laying them but isn't it amazing how there all exactly the same size and perfect,nature is fantastic and will always fascinate me there is something new and beautiful for us to see every day if we look hard enough.

Quite right!

There's a lot to be said for just standing and staring.(Even if one does get a reputation for being rather excentric!)
