Eyes of the Tiger

Remember the rock song, "Eye of the Tiger," by Survivor? For several seasons of Charter Oak High School football, it was played to welcome the team on the field. Now, I can't look at tigers without thinking of that song. Although this Sumatran tiger's gaze did temporarily distract my memory on Saturday at the National Zoo. 

Looking through the camera's viewfinder, the tiger's eyes appeared black. I was so pleased to see that in the final image, the tiger's eyes appeared golden amber. It just shows that sometimes instinct is a better guide for photography than what appears on your camera's viewfinder or LCD screen.
