[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Persian leopard (Panthera pardus ciscaucasica syn. Panthera pardus saxicolor), also called Caucasian leopard, is the largest leopard subspecies, and is native to eastern Turkey, the Caucasus mountains, northern Iran, southern Turkmenistan, and parts of western Afghanistan. It is endangered throughout its range with fewer than 8711,290 mature individuals and a declining population trend. I got this in ghorkhud protected area in north khorasan .

Hi Ali
this is a lovely picture of the natural habitat of the Leopard, very nice colors and good eye contact. The magpie helps to guid your eyes towards the Leopard
well done

Dear Ali,

I'm from Turkey and you won't believe how its difficult to locate this species here! It seems that you are lucky enough to get this one there. For conservation we need to find some individuals here in Turkey. There are some recent records here but it is a pity that all are hunted usually by shepherds and hunters.

Thank you for this useful information and beautiful photo. It gives courage to us seeing Iran is protecting its wild cats. I'm glad with that...
