I have no idea how this worked, maybe somebody knows and can tell me. Lizzi and I stopped by the Issaquah zoo today on our way back from Seattle. Now around these tigers are two fences. The first fence is bars that are about 2 inches apart and then there is a inner fence that is like a traditional fence with squares that are about 2 inches square. It is about a foot or so inside of the outside fence. I had to put my camera up against the bars with the lens in between the bars and try and zoom all the way in between the squares and get the picture without the fence ruining the picture. Well no matter how I tried I just couldn’t zoom in enough to keep the inside fence out of the picture. Well when I looked at my pictures at home it is as if the inside fence almost melted into the picture. You can hardly even see the fence and even when you do see it. It is as if the fence just blended into the tiger. I have no idea how it worked but I think it came out amazing. The only thing I did to this picture is resize it, Please zoom in and you will see what I mean. These are such big amazing animals. I hope you like it.

I may seem right off the wall with this comment Randy but I was immediately taken by the expression on the cat's face. I thought of you the moment I first looked at it, and even now it seems you and the cat have the same expression.

It's a bit like putting a mesh or veil over your eyes - people can't see in but you can see out! Also, with a wide apperature the camera is looking past the bars and they dont appear prominent. Great capture of this magnificent big cat!

very beautiful capture of an eligant tigar. the reason for the double fence is to keep people out and from tossing things to the tigars.

Yes the DOF does that, low F-stop. :)

As far as zooming in, I find 300mm works well for getting a narrow enough field of view to shoot though chain-link fences.

Great capture of this great cat! :)

Depending on your distance and the aperture (f-stop) you are set at, there will be varying levels of depth of field. So, in this case, you had the perfect situation where you were very close to the fence, the focus was on the tiger and the resulting bokeh blur of the fence in the foreground caused it to, as you put it, melt into the image.
Of course, this is a very cool and desired result- it looks as though he is right on top of you about to pounce! Very nice capture!
