This has come has so well Emma, the cats were so photogenic, my shots of them just sadley looked like large domestic cats but this is nice, well taken.
Very nice shot of the Scotish Wild Cat, she looks very relaxed. Not easy to get a good shot in these bright conditions this time of year at that time of day but you did a good job. The highlights in the grass are a little bright and distract a little but not much that you could do about that for the above reasons. You might try toning them down with the shadows and highlights tool in PS if thats what you use.
Is this the same Cat that we were allowed to go in with? If so she is the one that lost the kitten if you didn't already know.
Very disturbing news about Thursley Common, I hope that some of it is spared from the fire and that the impact on the wildlife isn't to great. And of course that you are safe and sound as well.

The light looks tricky, and you've got a good result.
He looks like he's just spotted his dinner. Great pose.
Thanks for posting, have a great holiday.
It's bad news about the fire, I hope the damage is minimal.

A difficult exposure that you have managed very well. very good colors and detail in the cat. From the facial expression, I don't think geeting in to get closer would have been a good idea.

Very good picture of this wild cat, Emma.
It DOES look wild, going by its facial expression.

Beautiful cat in a lovely landscape! The cat is very confortable in shadow, but it complicated light for you!;-)
TFS, JosÚ M.
Lovely shot of this Lady. Good exposure considering the harsh light and lovely detail. Whenever I saw her she was sitting under a log in the shade so I didn't get anything that was usable.

This is a great shot of this wild cat. The exposure is spot-on taking into account that you had contrasting lighting conditions.
