Taken at Drayton Manor theme park zoo last week, I waited ages for this guy to look in my direction.

Thanks all for your comments, glad you like the shot. It was one of those high pressure situations with the wife tutting at me to hurry up. Maybe I'll print it out and give it to her as a present

Yes, and he can often come across as quite wooden

A good strong portrait, you've got the owl staring you down!

He was, yeah, probably because I asked him to sign a model release form.

It is uncanny though

Agreed, background suits and shows the subject off nicely without allowing the eye to wander

Yep, we've all been there! Now my wife walks on which is good as the 3 kids follow her and leave me in peace ...... until I catch up and have the death stare !!
