One phrase for today: Too Cute ! Too Cute !
Two little adorable, cuddly, cute, fuzzy and stripped Sumatran tiger cubs have started their daily outdoor adventures at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park.
Born on August 5, 2013 to their parents Damai (mom) and Kavi (dad), Sukacita (girl) and Bandar (boy) are as cute as cute can be. They are now being turned out daily at 10am for about an hour of outside adventure with their mom. This of course, depends on weather, and the animals themselves.
It’s going to be a thrill to watch them grow in the upcoming months. And hold on..there are rumors of hoping of starting a new lion pride with Luke and his lovely ladies next spring.
Suffice to say that I took a 32 gig memory card and quickly blew through 700 images. Saving the remaining space for other zoo visits I had to leave as my memory card got full. 1300+ images to work through, so I’ll be busy for a few days.

It’s always a joy to visit your blog Emily, superb images ! 🙂
You are so kind Jocelyn. Just stopped by your blog real quick to refresh my memory with your name and I forgot how fabulous your work is. Thank you so much!
A big thank you to you Emily ! 🙂
You’re right, cute is the word of the day!
Don’t you want one??
aaaww.. they’re really too cute 🙂 great pictures emily!
It’s such a pleasure to share these with you Evi. Wish you could be there with me. Thank you so much.
Resistance is futile–I have to admit they are really cute. Your wonderful photos are enough to encourage me to visit them, since I live in the Northern Virginia suburbs, only a metro ride away from the National Zoo.
Oh you should ! Definitely when they are still babies. Hope you get to visit them.
What amazing blue eyes! I wasn’t expecting that on a tiger! How lucky you are to have seen them so close!
The color of their eyes really surprised me. They almost look a little possessed to me. Mom’s is quite yellow. I agree, I was darn close, and add that 500mm lens and I’m in their face! Lol!
Awsome! You are one brave lady!
Beautiful. Kinda wants to make you go hug them.
Oh you and I, being cat lovers would totally grab them and hug them, pet them and love them. 🙂
Oh My Goodness – lover of Big Cats – thanks so much for sharing – Great Captures!!!
Thank you so much Renee ! Aren’t they just darling?
These are wonderful captures! They are so so adorable! I love Tigers, always have, these cubs are so lovely and look at the size of their paws already!!! 🙂
You noticed what I did. What huge paws they have. Thank you so very much. 🙂
