I am intrigued by the intensity of a cat's expression when they are hunting or even when they think about hunting. I see it on my cat's face at home, and I see it on the face of big cats when I'm on safari. No herbivore ever looks like this because their eyes are on either side of their head so they can see, essentially, a panorama to be on the lookout for predators. The eyes of cats are on the front of their faces -- the better to focus on potential meals. I captured this cheetah in late afternoon light when he had spotted a herd of impala. The sun was low enough to illuminate the eyes but high enough to create that compelling horizontal shadow that crosses the pupils. I think that adds to the deadly countenance of the cheetah. My settings were 1/640, f/14, and 320 ISO. In Photoshop, I darkened the background a little to direct all the attention on the cat.
