Shadowness - Prey http://shadowness.com I love to take nature related photos, especially close-ups and wild animals. My favorite animals are big cats. I like their wild, untamable souls. en How dare You? http://shadowness.com/Prey/how-dare-you <a href="http://shadowness.com/Prey/how-dare-you"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/234707/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is one of the cheetahs(Acinonyx Jubatus) from the Krefelder Zoo. Calm down, it's just the very end of a huge yawn ;) Camera: Canon EOS 400D Lens: Canon EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III Fri, 22 Jun 2012 03:33:10 -0400 Menacing Presence http://shadowness.com/Prey/menacing-presence <a href="http://shadowness.com/Prey/menacing-presence"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item8/225464/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This is Porgy the male Jaguar (Panthera Onca) from the Krefelder Zoo. I know it's not that perfect but this is my very first jaguar shot and one of the few I could take with nice light! The sky was covered completely by clouds a few minutes later..

This is one of the african cheetahs(Acinonyx Jubatus) from the Krefelder Zoo. You can't imagine how many times I tried to capture a cheetah chirping, I mostly pressed the shutter release too late. They do it very fast and this was more like a lucky shot but I'm glad to have it ^.^ Fri, 20 Apr 2012 04:06:54 -0400 Dawns Awakening http://shadowness.com/Prey/dawns-awakening <a href="http://shadowness.com/Prey/dawns-awakening"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item7/205109/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />This duck swims on the river Lippe which is located in Germany.
