The Heart-Stopping Encounter of a Deer in the Jaws of Death, as a Tiger’s Ambush Unfolds in the Depths of an Indian Wildlife Reserve

This is the dramatic moment a heard of deer were ambushed by a tiger who charged out of some bushes while its prey drank from a pond.

However, the fleet-footed deer managed to escape harm and dodge the tiger’s surprise attack.

The dedicated photographer waited for six days after finding the spot, describing it as the perfect site for an ambush attack.

The deer are completely unaware of the predator but still manage to escape, leaving the disappointed tiger to cool off in some water.

The first photo shows the deer drinking water from a pond, blissfully unaware of the impending drama. The tiger, which cannot be seen yet, is stealthily hidden away in the bushes to the right of the pond

The second image shows the tiger bursting out from its cover and stalking towards the deer. The would-be prey reacts quickly, however, and starts to run away despite being initially startled by the appearance of the predator

The tiger stops suddenly near its prey as he takes in the scene. The presumably terrified deer can be seen fleeing in every direction, including several young fawn

This brilliant shot shows the focused eyes of the predator while an acrobatic young deer leaps gracefully away as it is chased by the powerful tiger. The animal seems to realise that its prey is about to slip away

The powerful predator looks to be focusing every muscle on the young deer as it leaps through the air and heads towards its prey. The climax of the sequence of photos shows the tiger stretching to catch at least one of the animals it’s hunting

However, it seems as if the tiger has failed on this occasion as it lands back on the ground without any deer in sight in the searing heat of the Ranthambhore National Park and Tiger Reserve, in Rajasthan, India

Despite startling the herd of deer after suddenly leaping out of some bushes, the tiger fails to grab any lunch. All the deer have escaped by this point as the predator bounds around the watering hole trying to find something to eat

The sad and disappointed tiger slinks away and drowns its sorrows in the watering hole as it cools down after the frantic and dramatic chase which lasted just eight seconds
