Callie, When I see the leopard it always amazes me to think how such a beautiful creature can transform in an instant into a fierce & terrifying killing machine.. I can't imagine what it would be like to turn and find one self face to face with one!! I like the setting & light here very much. The posture of the leopard combined with its intense look make this one very special IMO. Well done!!

Hij is mooie man, echt mooi,
Dit is volgens mij echt hetgeen je het liefste doe. Foto's maken van roofdieren. Hele mooie foto Callie, schitterende capture, goede kleuren. Jij bent de expert, very good job
Great shot Callie.
Great pose and comosition and very good details.
Very well done.
I did a WS, this the first time I touch your picture ;-).
IMO it's a little red tone in the picture, maybe it should be.
but anyway I did a ws.

I'm surprised you haven't got the complaint of "Too bad the branches are in the way," or "Too bad the branch is cuuting the body," yet.
I'm sick and tired of that.
Hey, perfect natural setting with a beautiful warm tone coming from the sun. What a pose of the cat. Well done, Callie.

Gorgeous capture, the pose is great - the tail is not obvious right away but when you see it the whole composition seems to fit. The sun on it's face is fantastic. Well done.

Dat is een mooie Krulstert van deze panter, ik denk Callie dat deze panter zicht mooi in houding zet voor de fotograaf, om er prachtig op te staan.
U bent een artiest op dit gebied!!!

Very nice capture Callie. The horizontal aspect works well here and the cat in the tree is a definite bonus. Yes a super shot. well done.

I agree this pose is fantastic. It does not seem to be "posing" for the shot because it know you are there, but looks as if you stealed this shot from his intimity. You should make a present to us from time to time and post this ones in Large format. Must be impressing. Thanks very much, this is appreciated.

Baie mooi die krulstert. Jy weet natuurlik dat Krulstert eintlik verwys na 'n bobbejaan, een van sy voorkeur geregte. Excellent pic.

Yeah. This is really wild animal. Not sissy from ZOO :-) Great pose and light. Superb piece of Africa on our monitors, Callie!

Great Foto!! Die beligting en die kleur vang die atmosfeer en omgewing van die Luiperd ontsettend mooi vas. Dis 'n Beaut!!
Ek verkies natuurlik die fotos wat vir jou die situasie wys bo die close-ups in elkgeval, maar die een is besonders.

He does look alert Callie and walking so stealthily. He has a beautiful coat and krulstert. I like it too. Well done.

Great pose and determined look on the leopards face. In my opinion though its too orangey and Gert's workshop is a better result.
I'm please you finally found a use for wives!!:)

Personal assessment of the photo: masterpiece
Huge visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent
Personal assessment of the note: great
You are right to be proud of this photo, Callie. Who would not be proud of such a success?
p.s.: Gert did an excellent WS.

Great composition, Callie. I like how you have captured the leopard - it looks ready for action. I also like how the branch creates a diagonal divide between the different colours. Well seen and framed.
