Look me in the eye! by Gili Orr

Shot in LA Zoo, with a Canon PowerShot S5 IS camera.

This tiger came as close as possible to look us, his big audience of people, straight in the eye. I wonder what he was thinking at the time…

    great shot, up close and personel.

  • Thank you, Kathy. Yes, I feel it as personal too. I am not sure how friendly he feels, though…

    WOW, awesome capture!!! He looks really close… I love tigers! Amazing shot!

  • Thanks ;-) I cropped him this way, wanted this feeling of closeness… but that makes the file too small for any kind of print on RB.
