Stalking Prey

Sue, Moomike and I went to Chester zoo today, met up with a few other togs who were about too – we got some wonderful shooting oppertunties around the jaguar enclosure – two of them were out in the open area and walking around, I\’ve never seen them out and about like this before. If that wasn\’t enough, a keeper brought out their dinner a few minutes later.

I can\’t decide if I like this one or not, I think it has good points and bad points. I have shots where the cat is closer and therefore past the branch that is blocking the view but I didn\’t manage to get it\’s leg in frame. I also think this shot gives the impression that the cat is hiding, waiting to pounce.
