This Puma had a keen eye on a small toddler running back and forth on the board walk. He'd watch and follow the kids every movement. I'm sure he was extremely hungry. :chew:

I'm usually not that much a fan of these shots where you don't see the full head. For this piece, the angle however was perfect. It does the hungry look in his eye justice. Very well captured.

Great creatures, i only like the big cats, the ones which show great power. Its great how they can show their dominance with just one simple expression. But, as much as i like these, the fact that they can kill a grown man is reason why i stay away from the bodmin countryside here in the UK, just incase the stories are true. Incredible work you have here.

Such a beautiful creature and generaly most animals find humans to salty but as you said the kid was running around and being a predator they are very attracted to movement, if you run they chase you simply on instinct

I'm still amazed at how close you can get with that set up. Nice DOF, and I agree with =eXsanguinousCorpse about dodging the eye a bit
