Panthera Pardus Orientalis
Little bit of movement in the whiskers and just a little soft on the eyes, otherwise a pretty striking image, and well presented.

A wonderful cat and a splendid photo.
This is an awe inspiring pic. What a capture. I do not have enough words to describe my happiness, when I look at it.
Keep going, TFS,
Ps: Just signed the petition. The due date for 10000 petitions was 2002. Just FYI.
very good dental shot...:D
no obtrusive background and well containing frame...the cat is pure force and energy as shown here..
my try at extreme sharpness if required

Good moment, excelent cadrage. Presentation contributed a lot. Vanity is the main enemy of these large cats: vanity of main to hunt it, vanity of woman to wear its fur. Thats why the Pesian cheetah, the Barbary lion, the Anatolian leopard and the Caspian tiger are gone. I was recently in South America and I was stroke by the extremelly small size of cougars compared to temperate parts of the North America.

unao scatto eccezzionale! Buona composizione, buona definizione.
Buon week end.
Excellent aggressive expression captured here. Well composed with a very good POV. Light, color and detail is excellent also. The whisker blur conveys movement nicely. I hope you don't mind, but I did a WS to try and improve this great image.

Lovely shot Nichole. He must have been panting hard as I can see motion blur around his whiskers. Nice crop. Good exposure. TFS.
