Armur Leopard making her way over to me...
One of the cubs from last year, to mum Zizi..she had three
two girls and a boy, taken at the WHF in Kent on a one to one day there.
was a good time of year to go with the wild flowers and greenery around

Thank you Herman for your User Award on the lion and cub yesterday
and to you all for your valued comments
