Out of the mist

Photo and caption by Michael Waters
The close-up portrait was taken early one misty morning at the zoo. I was granted special permission to enter the display environment of the tigers accompanied by a couple of zoo keepers. It was the most exhilarating moment of my life, having to stay focused on getting the shot and at the same time being very aware of the potential danger of the situation.
