[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mountain Lion at the Como Park Zoo in St. Paul MN, USA.

Once the most extensivley distubuted of all America mammals the Mountain Lion ranged from coast to coast in North America and from southern Argentina to Southeastern Alaska. Habitat destruction and hunting pressure restricted their range relatively unpopulated areas throughout much of their range. Recently Cougar populations have begun to increase in suburban areas across the United States.

Kids running by this Cougar's compound attracted the attention of this captive specimen.

ISO 1600 on a heavily overcast day.

Hi Timothy,
very nice pose and POV. Well composed and nice colours.
It lack of contrast and it's a bit soft.
I think it's the used of the high ISO, high ISO always reduce details. I don't think you need 1600ISO with the KM 7D.
Well done.
