Poring Over the Picture

It’s not necessary to go on safari to get great images of big cats, but it does help to have a great zoo nearby. I am pretty fortunate in that respect because I live near the National Zoo in Washington, DC, and I try to get there as often as possible. The key is to take a long lens to isolate the animals from their surroundings. Having a little patience in your camera bag doesn’t hurt either.
