Mikhail, a 500-something pound Amur (Siberian) tiger, stalks toward me from the back of his enclosure at the Oregon Zoo. Even with my camera in front of my face, I know he's staring right at me, and through the viewfinder, I can see the intensity in his eyes.
To this day, I believe this is one of the best big cat photographs I've taken. I blackened the background for a more dramatic affect.
On a side note, if you're wondering why this Siberian tiger is not white, you may want to check this out: [link]
