[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
To crop, or not to crop...
As with the cheetah picture, I tried several alternatives: here is the original, suggesting perhaps the best the dynamic behavior of the cat...
(as the cat was unfortunately in the shadow, I could not take the picture in the sun, but I'll try to do better next time...)

excellent wild life image. interesting species. good photography.

Hi Pol
do not crop, it's better this way
that's my favourite african cat (beside Caracal which I have as so many others never seen)
the pov might not be perfect as it is a bit high, a lower pov would improve the bg, but that's theory, often it is not possible to change anything. But if the animals are close better take pictures from the window rather than from the open roof
great anyway, so bring the Caracal next!

Hallo Paul
Lovely spot-on focus of this unusual cat. The markings on its fur is beautifully displayed and seen. It has a very slender posture and the way you captured it shows it well. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
