This is Malawi a Serval Cat, not too happy as you will see in V2 as he pounces towards us!...
Yes, we were in the enclosure with him.


Taken earlier in the year at WHF in Kent.

Thank You EVERY ONE!...Been a hard road to travel of late

Two great shots, Lillian: the fact that V 2 is slightly OOF only adds to the sense of sudden movement.

The intensity of his look in v1 as he is totally concentrated comes through so well, Lillian. As for v2, well...sheer and pure aggression concentrated on only one thing - whatever or whoever that was.
Magnificently captured and you obviously stood you ground well!
