PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) is a year round calendar of selected nature images and stories with contributions from visitors, fellow photographers and friends.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those fascinating tales of high adventure that often accompany talent and skill for a fabulous result. If a picture is truly worth more than a thousand words then a well-timed shot, or a well framed one, can say just as much about you as a photographer too! So if you'd like to showcase one of your pictures here, free, for one calendar month with a short story on how you managed to come by it, then this page is for you.

Save the Tiger by Roger Cox
Tiger, tiger, staring right, into my assisting focus light. What trembling hand or eye could capture that ravening glare we see?  
 Any hand capable of remaining steady whilst holding a camera this close to a Sumatran tiger would have to belong to someone very brave or foolish indeed!
 The smallest of all the tigers, yet well-known for their fearless attitude toward humans, these supersized carnivores weighing 140kg, with powerful claws, teeth and jaw strength of 450kg/cm2, are amongst the most ruthless and efficient land predators in the world! Undoubtedly, one of nature's most terrifying hunters, since any fears we might have of one stalking us in a forest or jungle wouldn't end at a river crossing – they're excellent swimmers too!  
 Of the nine tiger subspecies, three are now extinct. The rest remain endangered, two of them critically, with the Sumatran numbering less than 400 in the wild! A conservation icon, this solitary, secretive apex predator is the last remaining island tiger on Earth! Distinctively maned, its signature orange fur with narrow black stripes are individually unique.
 Tigers have the largest canine teeth of any living cat — something they patently make use of when defending their territories. However, in less threatened domains, they're happy to breed all year round. Unfortunately, given its current rate of decline from excessive logging, poaching and farming, there's little room left in Sumatra for Indonesia's last tiger to retreat and recover from a conflict that's driven it to near-certain extinction.
