Extremely dark situation, at a captive wildlife facility at dusk. Too dark for autofocus, had to switch to manual focus and do a series of shots with quick review and minor adjustment to get focus on eyes. F2 because DOF was so shallow that 1.4 or 1.8 were too thin to get all of head in focus. Even at this large aperture and ISO cranked up to 4000 and exposure compensation set to minus one (image lightened afterwards in PSE), shutter speed was only 1/3 second. Only worked because fishing cat was completely still and camera (5D2) was on a tripod.
