[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One shot of a young Asian leopard (Chinese, believe it or not... did not knew that China has panthers until very recently...) at the Palm Springs Zoo, part of a specie rehabilitation program.
This is a shot taken from ridiculously close: 10 - 15 inches trough glass (... I might be crazy but I am no idiot !!! ).
Like it?

Excellent shot! I liked it very much. I think he saw you and show his tongue :) Very good POV.Thanks for sharing

Perfect shot, great POV, details and colours.
Very well done.

Good one Radu.This is choice man.His eyes look kind of bulgy...wonder what he's on?

An interesting shot using a wide angle lens to distort the head from the body. Kind of weird looking, I'm used to seeing normal shots. You went for an artsy shot, humour, o.k. it's funny.
Well done on this one.

Where can we by soft toys like this one? He looks very cuddly. Probably a good thing that there was a sheet of glass separating you. Great capture and composition.

This is very well captured, Radu. Excellent DOF and detail. Wonderful composition and lighting. Is he sticking his tongue out at you? Thank you.
