Her look really means what she thinks!!
She means bussiness

She has been in so many fights, lost bits all over her body! her ears are 'mangled' with her mouth been in battle too!
but still a beautiful beast with snow still on the ground showing her lovely detail in the fur


V2 another with snow on face...if it uploads! as taking an age

Thank You Hugh, Dave and John for your Awards very much appreciated
and to you all for stopping by...thank you

A beautiful animal, Lillian, captured in your own inimitable style, the expsoure spot on, and that not too easy with such a totally black coat. The intense gaze towards camera is excellent too.
Very well done indeed.
V 2 a fine portrait too, but the prize goes to V 1.
Ronnie.

Chops! THAT's the word I was looking for. 'Cos I was thinking it looks like she's rinsing with mouthwash with her chops looking all ballooned out.

Two excellent captures, Lillian, but V1 is stunning.

I wouldn't want to trifle with this formidable beast Lillian, it looks like she's got you in her sights or she's putting on this expression for the epzers' so that they know to respect her in future!!!
