The hunting instinct

Eye on the prize, Tanzania, January 2009

Observing big cat behaviour in the wild I noticed a particular trait. They can seem totally at ease, at leisure, until likely prey starts to come into range. Suddenly all attention is focused. If the quarry becomes aware, the disinterest is feigned. Once the target turns away, focus locks on once more.

Rather like a prowling photographer out on the streets.

    Great image Martin, really dramatic, much better than my attempts on Safari.
