Golaghat: Nature is filled with exotic flora and fauna around us. Different kinds of species and greenery co-exist with one another.

Until COVID-19 knocked at our doors, there was nothing but drudgery in our normal lives. The fast-paced quality of it just made us more robotic than usual. No one got the time to really look around them and take in all the surroundings.

So involved we were in our lives that we never had the time to appreciate the beauty of any kind. Once the lockdown was imposed all over the world to curb the spread of the deadly virus, all of us became so conscious of everything around us. Suddenly, all the attention was showered at nature and the bounties it has to offer.

The result of this has been the internet being flooded with content coming right from the horses’ mouth. For wildlife photographers, their work suddenly got traction as some of their interesting and intriguing creations went viral on all social media platforms. They dedicate their whole life to the exotic culture of the wild and they only now got recognition for their hard work.

If anything, this newfound love for nature and its inhabitants is a silver lining in the otherwise bleak and dreary world the novel coronavirus has brought about.

Recently, beautiful pictures of the black panther from the Kabini forest in Karnataka had gone viral.

Now, pictures of another rare animal are doing the rounds. This time, it is the ‘Golden Tiger.’

Also known as ‘Tabby Tiger’ or ‘Strawberry Tiger’, this beautiful cat is found in Assam’s Kaziranga. However, this is the country's only Golden Tiger.

It has red and brown stripes and has a pale golden color. This is what makes it different from a Bengal Tiger who has red and black stripes.

IFS officer Parveen Kaswan shared magnificent photos of the fierce animal on his Twitter page.

Kaswan also mentioned that the photos shared are originally clicked by a photographer named Mayuresh Hendre.

Netizens were absolutely blown away by the exquisite beauty. They expressed their feelings in the comments section.

Post COVID-19, all we can hope for is that this love for nature never ends and we keep basking in the glory of what we have in offer for us around.
