Stealing a yawn

Sometimes being able to recognise photographic potential in a situation is everything -- while this might seem like a grab shot, it actually wasn't -- I saw this lady standing framed like this and decided to wait for her to do something interesting and then take a shot. The trick is not to bring the camera up to your eye to shoot until you anticipate that something interesting is going to happen, otherwise the spontaneity of the shot is lost if the subject notices you. I actually waited and took 3-4 shots surreptitiously for quite a few minutes until I got this one. :) Nikon D200, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR
