Snow Leopard Portrait
Posted By: GryphonPhotoCat, 11-16-2014, 09:40 PM

Managed to get this image as some kids ran past me screaming to get to the tiger enclosure. The leopard just turned his head looking back towards the setting sun. I think I could almost feel it sigh in sort of Kitty exasperation.

This image was taken through fencing at 2.8 to try and eliminate the fencing from in front of and behind the subject. I love the colors and the shape. They're just such amazing animals. I wonder what is going on behind those deep eyes.

very nice photo

and great technique ( i take a lot of photos in zoos and am well aware of the challenges that presents )

such animals are well worth the trouble

looks like it was taken in a studio not a zoo

Definitely looks more like a glamor shot than a photo through a cage. Excellent shot.
