Ears flattened, not a good sign!

Someone she did not like walked past ..a North Chinese Leopard
with the longest whiskers on any cat!...She is behind glass!
...all that spit would have coated me and my camera ..V2 another ''moment''
but both not really great photos, hand held, and wrong lens!

Thank You so much to Carol, Steve, Nathan Maureen, and Herman
for your User Awards, very much appreciated on the Clouded Leopard


Enjoy the sunshine

Wow! That is not a happy cat! So glad you were behind glass.
Captured her mood wonderfully. Awesome capture.
Did they say why she reacted to that person so aggresively?
I don't appear to see V2 though.
Got V2 now Grin

I think these are great shots of this rattled big cat, Lillian, but note your comment about having the wrong lens.......what would have preferred, out of interest: I say that not having had an opportunity for such photography.

It's interesting that you seem not totally happy with these pictures.............can I have them ?? WinkWinkTongue

Seriously I would be on a real high if I had got them but my standards are much lower than yours and the skill factor equally so. I like the low angle on these shots and have always been a fan of frame filling images. Great pictures....and now must have a look at your clouded leopard which I missed.

You, as you can see, are your own worst critic Lillian. These are superb shots, and completely show off the lovely lady's displeasure. I would have jumped up my own backside, had she sprang like that while I was around.
