Speckled owlet

This owlet was photographed in midsummer last year somewhere around a village in the nearest forest. The owlet seemed to be not afraid of the photographer at all. It kept sitting in its nest as if people were not present.

Amur tiger

Amur tigers are grand predators inhabiting Russian and Chinese Far East. They are not endangered species anymore, but are still very rare. Poachers are the main enemies of the Amur tiger.

 

These great and beautiful Far Eastern cats are much bigger than those living in India – Bengal tigers, and less aggressive to people.
