The one I've never been able to get good pictures of in the past is Bullet, the male. On Saturday I got lucky. After spending quite a while with the tigers, I stopped by the Fishing Cat enclosure again on my way out. I watched Miri for close to 30 minutes but she barely moved, so finally I decided lunch was more important. Right before I got to the Zoo exit I ran into the keeper who takes care of Miri and Bullet. She had a bowl of fresh meat in her hand, and said she was on her way to give Bullet a snack. She was going to pull Miri in off exhibit, places chunks of meat in various spots around the enclosure, and let Bullet out so that he would have something to go looking for.
Bullet weighs about 25 lbs but doesn't really look all that big. He moves pretty fast too.
He's spotted a piece of meat on the log that crosses the pond.
I think this next one is my favorite shot of Bullet so far.
