[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi, guys! I’ new around here. I am an amateur photographer who shuts mainly wild life. I have some places around the city where I live where I usually go for “hunting”! One of them is a forest which never stops to surprise me. It’s full of dears, wild boar, foxes.. There should be wolfs to but never met one of them… This is the place where I met this wild cat. It was out in an open space, I followed it, trying to get closer… In a moment he turned around and walked just towards me… It was a really exciting moment… I managed to take several shots and this is one of them… Than he turned again and disappeared into the forest …

Hi Csaba,

The tail on that wild cat is incredible. The rest of its body looks like a normal cat. You've captured it very well. Good colours and details. I like the shadow that you've included also. TFS.


Buna Csaba.
Bine ai venit pe acest site.
Foarte buna captura acestei pisici salbatice.
Seamana foarte mult cu cele domestice .
Felicitari pentru acesta poza.
Multe salutari.Alin.

Hallo Csaba
What a wonderful encounter you had with this lovely wild cat. Wow I am sure the adrenalin was pumping like mad, I know that is how I feel when we came across a leopard in the Kruger National Park and recently with some cheetahs in the iMfolozi Game reserve. This is a great image, taken from the front, showing details like the beautiful green eyes, the white whiskers and off course that thick striped tail to the best. Indeed a picture to be proud of. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

hat ez fantasztikus... ugyes foto!!!

Ciao Csaba, welcome on TN, great capture of lovely wild cat, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Salut Csaba si bun venit pe TN!
Un inceput fantastic: pisica salbatica, cam rara si pe aici, dar si prin padurile Europei. Imagine excelenta, nu am ce zice! Sincere felicitari!
Asteptam si alte fotografii la fel de superbe de prin zona Brasovului!
Numai bine,

Ciao Csaba. Great rare capture with amazing light and very good DOF. Very well details and sharp too. Welcome on TN and nice to meet you.


Wooow, Csaba, this cat is fantastic, such a great luck to see one in wild nature.
Excellent shot, good sharpness, great moment, thanks

Salut Csaba,

Absoluta incredibila captura acestei mici feline, intradevar o specie destul de rar intalnita si fotografiata, poza ta este de asemenea una rara, iar postura in care ai fotografiato este abusolut perfeta cu detalii clare culori superbe si lumina excelenta.

Buna treaba! Foarte reusita fotografia! Io n-am vazut inca niciodata o pisica salbatica:(

Salut Csabi si imi pare bine sa te cunosc

Multumesc, inainte de tot, de cuvintele frumoase la adresa imaginii si galeriei mele; ma bucur ca-ti plac :)

Trebuie sa recunosc ca ma uit si eu cu placere la pozele tale, iar dintre toate, acesta mi se pare absolut excelenta!
Nu numai ca ai prins in poza un animal (din cate stiu eu) rar si greu de vazut in zone asa descoperite si deci nu ascuns undeva intr-o vegetatie densa, ci ai reusit o imagine exceptionala si din punct de vedere artistic.
Adancimea campului vizual e super, in opinia mea, lumina e foarte bine controlata si culorile sunt bine saturate, ramanand in acelasi timp naturale.
Foarte foarte frumos.

Bravo si merci de postare

Hello Csaba,

This is a lovely shot! Very nicely captured. Nice eye contact. Very sharp and clear image

I hope and very sure that the "hunting" you means is shooting photographs. No one in real terms should hunt these lovely animals. We are actually lucky and could see these animals, very soon we have to let our kids tell the stories about these animals and they find those similar to the stories of dinosaur. Year 1952 was the year when the mighty cat called Asian Chittah hunted in India and that was the last one. Now a days we just hear stories about it. HAd never seen it in my life and will never be able to :(

This site is for the photographers of the nature lovers.


Hello Csaba,
an incredible place you have chosen for your hunting ground, allowing you to portray a wild cat in approach in such an intimate way!
I like that image's simple and effective off-centre composition combining an intense frontal approach with a slight turn to the side. Thank you!
With best regards,

Hallo Csaba,
Great image. Very striking! Stunning details, beautiful eyes and the intense stare of the cat . What more can I say? I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
