[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the Pittsburgh Zoo. The conditions were tricky - he was behind thick glass in an enclosure with muted light. Luckily he held almost completely still for quite some time, giving me an opportunity to adjust settings until I could get an acceptable image.

I liked this relaxed pose with his legs crossed, and the way he seemed to be looking at me with his intense gaze.
