Tigers and Lions, and Jaguars, Oh My!
Some shots of the lovely cats who live at the Mirage Hotel, in Vegas. Well, not at the Mirage, per se, wouldn’t that be silly? Just in their own special garden in the lobby. Oh Vegas…
These photos posed the challenge of using focal distance and f-stop settings to minimize the distraction of the wire fencing, except, of course, in two of the lion shots where I wanted to give the sense of nothing between the viewer and the lion except an open fence.
This is the closest I’ve ever been to these cats and I couldn’t get over how large the lions really are. I think the one fella was thinking I’d make a light snack, in all my 4’9″ glory!
