I was on my way out of the San Diego Safari Park and I came across the last moments of a “meet the animals” encounter where the trainers had a young cheetah “on display” up close and personal to the crowd. I came around a corner and just got off one shot at the very end of the encounter. When I got home I did a quick crop on the photo because part of the Cheetah was masked by the handler and I looked at the resulting close-up. As luck sometimes happens, I unintentionally caught pretty good images of the trainer directly in the dark pupils of the “trainee”. Sometimes its amazing what you can capture with a quick candid shot!
