Over the last year of two, I have discovered that I enjoy taking photos of animals. I’m not sure why, other than it’s a challenge and I enjoy the results, at least when the animals cooperate. Trying to anticipate their moves and prepare for the moment is half the challenge. The other half is being ready for that split second when they are “just right” as they don’t hold any pose long.

Looking into the eyes of a tiger. It is not often you can get a view this close of an animal that is so feared.
