At the Sikhote-Alin Mountains
Siberian Tiger

A good point for view and to rest, from the ridge to the valley. A tigress with her cub. Siberian pine cover the hillsides. A flight of Nutcrackers Nucifraga caryocatactes is an interesting addition to this picture. The bills of these birds are specialized tools for extracting seeds from pine cones.

Surplus seed is always stored for later use, and it is this species that is responsible for the re-establishment of their favoured pines over large areas. Maybe generations of these birds have helped establish these Siberian Pine wooded hills.

A Snow storm is brewing in the distance which adds to the mood of the picture.
