An Amazing photo--I just hope that you had an huge telephoto lens and that you were either behind a fence or a looooong way away as you look as if you are right in the path of this pouncing feline ferocity and power! Since you lived to post the photo, I can only assume that something like that was the case. Magnificent capture!
There is a sanctuary for tigers and lions that where mistreated or unwanted. They have large spaces to run around. So the people that take care of them, charge for people to photograph them, and all the money goes to feeding these animals. It was very early so there wasn't much light, I believe my shutter speed was between 1/250 and 1/400.
