Apple of her eye…Cheetah style


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!
