[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Le Serval est un Félin qui mesure 65 à 90 cm et pèse de 6 à 15 kilos. Il est élancé et haut sur pattes. Les pattes postérieures sont plus longues que les antérieures. Tête petite ; grandes oreilles ; dos et flanc ocre clair à jaune olivâtre foncé ; ventre blanchâtre ; pelage parsemé de grosses taches noires sur tout le corps. Très répandu en Afrique orientale mais fréquent nulle part, ce qui le rend difficile à observer. Vit dans les savanes buissonneuses ou boisées. Préfère la proximité de l'eau et des endroits offrant des possibilités d'abri. Le Serval est diurne, mais il chasse au crépuscule et les nuits de pleine lune. Cette photo a été prise dans le Masai Mara au Kenya.

Bonjour, Farid. What a beautiful and unusual cat. Its head is amazingly small for that body. The background is a bit distracting, but great POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Love those big ears! You caught a great expression, Farid, on this serval. He appears to be watching something. I'm wondering if the focus is on the branch in front making the serval a little soft. Great photo! Thanks for sharing this curious fellow. :-)

Cute looking cat Farid. Nice exposure and POV. Good light details and sharpness. Well done. Thanks

Hi Farid, I like this photo very much. It's such a beautiful cat. You're lucky to be able to spend time in Africa photographing animals such as this one. Thanks for sharing!
