The day I visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum the mountain lions were lazy and stayed in the back of their enclosure. I waited around, determined to get some sort of action shot. I was about to give up when this particular mountain lion moved from the dark recesses of the enclosure and into the sunlight. He was perfectly front-lit with a completely black background, creating this dramatic monochromatic portrait.
