The Amur tigers and leopards have become a passion of mine with regular visits to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. I haven't been to this particular park but it looks like a must go to place! Your image is stunning and I'm very envious as I haven't seen let alone photographed a cub! The more coverage these magnificent creatures get and their plight in the wild the more chance we have of saving them! Regards ,,Ian

What a photogenic subject!
WHF is indeed a great place. It is one of my best photo days that I have had, and it's only a short drive for me.
This must be one of many great shots from the day, look forward to seeing more.

Expertly done, Lillian. The pose and expression is down to the cubs but you've captured them at a great angle. The lighting is excellent and the dof spot on. Beautiful image.

Hi Lillian, thank you for a wonderful day out yesterday am so looking forward to you topping this one?

An absolutely enchanting image Lillian, you've definitely made the most of this opportunity. There was plenty of ooo'ing and aaarr'ing when I was down in Bristol too...........but that was just the Big O talking in his broad Bristolian accent!Grin
