The Pallas Cat has always grabbed my attention – they are both cute and menacing, and their facial expressions often cause me to smile. What they lack in size, they certainly makeup for in sass and attitude.

I sensed that my previous attempts at photographing the cat had failed to fully capture their attitude, and for me, that is what the species is all about, so when I had a recent break in between shoots for the next book I jumped at the chance to photograph the pallas cat again.

I immediately got down low because I knew that to capture their intense, cold stare I had to at least be at the same level as their eyes, if not slightly lower. Once in position it was a case of waiting, and hoping, that he would give me that grumpy look that always makes me smile. He did, and I left with a smile on my face.
