My brother-in-law Chris is becoming a mainstay here on BA Caturdays. But his pictures are just so good! And since it's Caturday, why not go big this time?
[Click to enfelinate.] That's a mama tiger and her cub at the Denver zoo. My family went there recently (without me; I was under a deadline for an article and was leaving the next day for North Dakota) and had a great time. I went with my wife and daughter last year, and it's a really nice zoo. One of the better underrated ones.
While they were there Chris got lots of other great pictures, including this lazy ursine fellow. He's also been taking pictures of hikes into the Rockies, and they're spectacular as well. Check out the rest of his stuff on Flickr!
