Tigress hugging a tree.   The photographic work depicting an Amur tigress hugging a tree near a hidden camera belongs to Russian photographer Sergei Gorshkov. Photography won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.   Gorshkov installed the equipment in the Land of the Leopard National Park in the Far East of Russia and left it for ten months, waiting for an automatic trigger when a tiger appeared. However, the skill of the photographer here lies in the fact that it was necessary to know exactly where he can most likely find the animal. Amur tigers have to travel great distances to find food, which makes it very difficult to get their images. ( from the site https://tjournal.ru/)
