"Three head shots"

I was at the Dallas Zoo recently and had the opportunity to get the three head shots shown below.
All with D4 f2.8 200mm iso=2000.

Glenn, nice shots of the Cheeta and Mountain Lion. Girraff is nice also, but the two cats are my favorites. The Cheeta looks a bit off color though, looks like he may be inside an enclosure with artificial lighting?

It has been a long time since I have been to the Dallas Zoo. I used to Live North of Dallas in Murphy, which is just East of Plano.

Cheers,
Gene

Thanks Gene...the cheetah was shot thru glass. He had quite a roaming space, but the glass offered a better view as the chain link fence segment had a lot of growth inhibiting a clear view.
The sun was hitting the glass from his side which may account for the
color variance.

Hi Glenn. The third is my favorite. Like the look in the face of that cat.
