Tigers and raindrops

During the summer my local zoo occasionally stays open late.  This week was the last time for the season, but a gentle ramble with friends was cut short by an amazing (if brief) rain storm.   All animals ran for cover, and so did most humans.  At the same time the sun was setting behind me, half covered by clouds, and the light was pleasingly strange.

Still, at least one tiger posed nicely before the rain arrived – she is in heat, I was told, and certainly seemed verrry interested in the adjacent male tiger enclosure.   He in turn watched her every head toss and tail flick with a clearly fake nonchalance.
