Focal Length:17.86mm
Shutter:1/25 sec

I know that the picture is blurred, but that’s what happens when you use zoom on a point-and-shoot camera. But that should not take away from the fact that we experienced a close sighting for a full grown Royal Bengal Tiger at the Ranthambore Sanctuary at Sawai Mansingh, Rajashtan, close to Jaipur. I love this shot, brings back many happy and exciting memories!
