Can you blame me for I am so madly inlove with these
wild cats, these children of the forest and their
devilish feline looks ? >:=[

Beau et intéressant portrait bien réalisée pour ce superbe félin. Jolies couleurs, bon point de vue et bonne netteté.
Beautiful, interesting & well done !

It's a great profile Radu.. I like the warm light. Very sharp and detailed..Maybe you can explain Beckett's premise to me sometime... Great shot!

wow, what a beautiful photo *just mistyped, I almost typed 'poster' :)* it does remember me of a poster I had once, but that one was of a dessert lynx if I'm not mistaking :)it's to bad that you don't have his ears on it anymore... but still here's a big smile :D
